I don't like traffic circles. I find them confusing. Maybe it is not so much that I find them confusing but others do and I find the behavior in them to be unpredictable. Maybe that is just a little bit too much like life. People come into the circle and then they leave, and sometimes you just don't know when that is going to happen.
Our friend Scott W. has decided to stop blogging - after 5 years of consistently doing it. His blog was consistent every single day. It was always a gratitude list, a real gratitude list. Most of the time he had beautiful art - most of it was his own work. I just want to acknowledge here how much I will miss his blog and how grateful I am to him for being an inspiration to me in this realm. I have met him and he is a wonderful man. His friendship with Dave is a wonderful thing to behold. The other thing I want to say is how much I respect his decision and the fact that it was done without guile or playing games. He may be back (and I hope he is), but he isn't attention seeking and being deceitful with us and I do so appreciate that. He will make the right decision for him, of that I am sure.
Now I am off through the snowy morning to get to church. And then to work, and then to another one of those lunches where I get to say goodbye to someone I hired a long time ago. And, if I must say so myself, that was a stellar decision! Despite people telling me not to hire him, he has worked out beautifully, for many years. And now he is off on his second career and he thanks me for giving him his start in it. Now, that is a warm feeling inside.
Oh, the things that can happen to us when we stay sober one day at a time are incredible! So, let's do it again today.
