A Full Day, and a Monk Seal, too!

Good Evening, God!

Such a FULL day . . . a day of rain showers and rainbows . . . of visits and outings . . . and my first sight of a Monk Seal! I was eating at the Hau Tree Lanai and there it was on the beach. It was alone because protective yellow tape had been put up to keep curious people away from him (or her). The species is officially endangered and there are laws about even getting too close.

These monk seals are solitary creatures, God. So unlike the cheerful and very social dolphins. Hmm. I just read yesterday that people with good social support networks have a longevity edge. I would think being gregariousness would give a species a survival edge as well.

So many good things in my day today . . . visits with friends, with Kit and with Mom . . . acupuncture treatment at Jujube’s . . . and some good work in the morning on getting my website rebuilt and ready to put up. I’m really thankful about that, God! And I do think that giving myself permission to make mistakes was a big part of that.

Before then, if anyone had asked me about “mistakes,” I would have gone on (and on) about how we learn by making mistakes. Indeed, that is how we are designed to learn. But, it seems that my gut didn’t get the message. That part of me wanted to know “how to do things” before doing them. But, Life seems to be a Learn As We Go, sort of deal.

One difficulty, God, is that big gap between what we know — and what we do. For example, I know that right now I should be getting ready for bed. I know it and I feel it. So, with a bit of help from You, I AM off to bed!
