Life is hard enough with plenty of cooperation. How long has that been? Since we had plenty of cooperation? The Familiarity of stabilizing routines help nudge us along from one recovery to the next, and they are getting more frequent as time goes by. The Supreme Court rocking people's world is far removed from what its role ought to be, guarding the systems of government and the rule of law, and enabling people to sustain themselves within an environment that is grounded upon the values of liberty and justice and not whims and why nots. But, here we are. Waiting for stability to form somewhere, somehow, and help us find our way through each day. Hoping they don't think of some more ways to say, "You know that life you were living? Well, you can't do it that way any more!" The one thing I know for sure is next is all people large and small recognizing the importance of voting for the Democrat on all levels of government, local, regional and national, from this time forth and forever more (Or until Republicans come to care about people, whichever comes first).
Live out of who you are. This is one of the fundamental Laws of Nature. The Natural Laws are inviolable, and we ignore them to our peril. What goes around, comes around. Another one. Extremes begat extremes. Ditto. One good turn deserves another. Time will tell. All in good time. Everything in its own time. What goes up must come down. A stitch in time saves nine. The shortest way through is the long way around. The tide goes out and the tide comes in. You can pay now, or you can pay later. If you are going to dance the dance you have to pay the piper. There are no free rides. Growing up is bearing the pain of doing what needs to be done. The list is long and gets longer the longer we live.
I like to have my affairs in order. To leave nothing hanging. Nothing up in the air. To take care of business. To do what needs to be done. With everything in its place. Daily. It cannot be "a good day to die" until things are as they should be in all of the days leading up to this one. That is harder than it seems. We cannot order our lives unless everyone in in life is doing their part in helping us tie things up and file them away. They don't return our calls. They don't reply to our emails. They don't see the importance of what we see as essential. We live at the discretion of someone else more often than we would like. And we have to let that be, because it is. I do better with that on some days than on others. Adjustment and compromise, Kid. Adjustment and compromise.
