Underway — and now in LA

Good Morning, God

Just now, looking out the plane’s window at the air flowing over the wing, I thought about how it is the plane pushing forward the creates the LIFT on the wings — enough “lift” to raise the whole plane and all its contents skyward. The wings just don’t look BIG ENOUGH to do that. However did they discover that? (And, if I knew how to add one of my photos I would HAVE a photo of my plane’s wing.)

Learning involves effort –I am used to living without much frustration — so I have forgotten that it is part of pushing through to new connections. Amy Chua understands that. Understands that PART of parenting or teaching is to push or pull the “child” into to experiencing that.

I remember when I learned that work could be satisfying. I was mopping the floor at the Girl Scout camp at Emerald Bay, Catalina. I was doing it “under duress” but midway through it came to me that I was enjoying seeing the floor become clean.

Ah, but I did not learn it well enough to teach it! Hmmm. I didn’t learn it well enough to use it in my own life — let alone, pass it on. So, HERE is another chance. Another series of chances.

Thank You, God, for new days, new opportunities, new chances. Life isn’t, perhaps, so much about “getting it Right” as it is about pressing forward with the choosing. Not so much in the EFFORT as in the SENSING? Discerning?

Now off into a Day of being in Your Compassionate — and quietly encouraging — presence.

Story teller,
