My plan is to wait and see what happens,
and then do what needs to be done.
When it needs to be done.
Where it needs to be done.
How it needs to be done.

No expectations.
No agendas.
No opinions.



Balance and Harmony.

Original nature.
Original virtues.


See it.
Feel it.
Know it.
Trust it.
Do it.

If I can think of 
how to improve on this.
I will.

Keeping the public happy 
is out of the question.
Somebody isn't going to like something
about everything/anything.
Malcontents are everywhere.

Not only are they malcontent,
they also think they are due
what they want
when they want it
how they want it
at all times
even though
it has never been that way ever.

And they are taking over the world.

There is nothing wrong with them
that growing up would not cure.

Growing up is out of the question.

And most of them are heavily armed.

Looking for someone to blame
for their misery.

It's the sign of a culture
in a downward spiral.
Blaming others 
for their failed expectations.
Immature and whining to the end.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
