10 January 2011
So, in a whole variety of ways, today was grey. Neither of the events on my mind were the least bit necessary; neither of them is explicable. And, no one can change what happened in either case. I hate to say it, now that I've given this snow day an unfavorable rating, but I'm kind of glad for today's lack of pizazz. Sometimes I need to dwell with and in confusion, sadness, misery before I can know what to do next.
Do I know? The what next?
I can mind my mouth and my attitude, taking more care that I contribute to the hopeful, that in everything I say -- and do -- I build up rather than tear down. There's discord enough without my adding to the broadcast of sarcasm and suspicion.
And, I can treasure the relationships I have, knowing they are, all of them, unique and temporary.
For now, that's enough.
