10,000 things are in our way, 
necessitating our return to 
the emptiness,
the stillness,
the silence,
waiting for the mud to settle
and the water to clear,
the noise to diminish
the complexity to wain,
in order to know what needs to be done,
where, when and how,
and do it,
time after time,
"without hope,
without witness,
without reward"
(Steven Moffat),
no matter what.

If enough of us do that,
it's a new world
like that (snaps fingers).

Why not?

What's the problem?

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.
