21 Days Toward Winter Solstice Day 2

Emerge

Beauty in contrast.                              Evening into morning light.          Starlights of color.

Ornamental glass.                                 Blown from molten silica.                     Flash of prism’s light.

Drawing a new line.                                     To emerge without effort.                      Allow the color.

Allow the line and your life                        To emerge with a slow pen.

It Seemed Like a Good Idea At The Time…

One day when I was a vice-principal at an elementary school, I was escorting three 2nd grade boys down the hall to “investigate” how they had flooded the bathroom floor. One’s comment to another was,

                               Well, Guys. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I have never forgotten that moment. All I wanted to do was laugh.

As I look back on my 70 years of life, I must admit that I have had more than a few “seemed like a good idea” moments. I look back at most of them, laugh, and think,

Oh Well. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

 I don’t believe that any of us wake up in the morning and say, “I think I’m going to create a bad day today.” But, sometimes as we Wander through our time, life happens.

And we always have the opportunity to Emerge under a new sun.

And, we have a good idea for the time.

Can you imagine how many sunrises have occurred for our earth? And how many people have watched the sunrise. And how many opportunities for new days have occurred.

So, we must laugh and have each day seem like a good idea at the time. There is always a new sunrise.
