Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
Projections are to facts
as dreams about drowning are to water.
When we talk about things "out there,"
its coming from "in here,"
and it would be helpful--
to us and to others--
if we qualified that by saying, "To me,"
after every evaluation/opinion
of some person/place/thing "out there."
When we say something or someone "is"
we could let that be a red flag waving,
reminding us to say "to me,"
or "as I see it," when we complete the statement,
keeping things "within the normal range"
by owning the opinion
and not allowing it to roll around
as an absolute fact
like a loose canon
on a pitching deck.
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.
