Living toward having preferences
without opinions or judgment
will keep us within
the normal distribution curve
of balance and harmony.

Having wants and desires
without having to have them
works the same way.

Being clear about the source
of our fear,
will help restore balance and harmony
and ease us into the flow of life
as companions of the Way.

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.
