What waiting might be and what it might do …

Waiting can be seen as inaction, except for those who experience it.   The wait can be favorable and it can be unfavorable depending on the view.  Looking forward and seeing some future–these create waiting - a place where patience can grow and where it is tested. To advance a fear, to create a joy, to see a sadness, to recognize a beginning or to behold an ending, to be in movement toward hellos and even goodbyes, to foresee an angst, to prospect a cooperation, reminiscing too, wanting to get inside or maybe to get out, and even hoping to accomplish --  it is all about the wait.  Looking forward and looking back begins with a view.  The view that dreams or believes must first be seen; if it is not your own, then the waiting requires consideration for another’s view.  It is in the mind’s eye that the action of waiting begins!  It all takes time – and it is in time where waiting lies.  To intentionally wait is to be aware, it is to be conscious – and for a brain – it is hardly simple!

Welcome 2019!

New years is here and with it another annual holiday takes center stage, carrying with it symbolisms, traditions, celebrations and iconic moments.  And so it begins, with more get togethers, more parties, more social media posts - with laughter, recalls, and anticipations.  Maybe the New Year event is just for fun, or it is about making memories and building hope.  Certain cities will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to blast away fireworks at the midnight toll, and others will go about it in media hype with milliions watching.  The counting down with ball dropping, queen swinging, dancing the night away yells ... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 ... and HOORAY it'll be 2019!  The 'year in review' reminds the masses of significant moments that captured passions as preferred by dedicated viewers.  At midnights end there will have been new years everything - having appeared for well over 7 or 8 days, beginning the morning after the last big holiday.  The gym, healthclub, wellness, and addiction commercials will air taking advantage of holiday indiscretions and indulgences.  End of year closeouts and last chance moments will be everywhere too...and resolution making will abound!  New Years is the roll over of a calendar date at an exacting hour made big by the people who wish it so.  For what 2018 brought, in positives and negatives, in amazing gains and amazing losses, in breakthroughs and in tragedies - the year is over.  Hello 2019; and for today-welcome!  Photo Credit: and R.

Holidays, celebrations & connections

The variations of what people celebrate this time of year are not all summarized in "Christmas" time.  The masses who celebrate in exchanges, get togethers, food festivities and in common greetings is quite remarkable - especially for those who are not similarly inclined - yet even they engage!  Santa and reindeer, stars and mangers, or maybe  jolly good times - whatever the reason for taking time off from work, the wrapping of gifts and baking treats, traveling afar and hosting many - it brings "families" and communities together.  As imperfect as people may be - in a culturally and overwhelming holiday such as this one,  the years and the differences of "us" are inited in "happy holidays."  Whether grand or small, abundant or frugal, treasures or practicalities, overflowing or critically necessary - gifts are every where.  December, 2018!

What These Hands Gave and Give ...

What these hands gave, and therefore still give, history and today's comparisons can attest.  His life, and by a photo choosing this could equally be about her life, is marked by some sacrifice, seen in the cracks and crevices of the arms and hands so worn by giving, so changed by time, so enhanced by wisdom.  Giving hands, as strong and calloused as these, hold within them the aged beauty of rugged finger tips, wisdomed wrinkles and worthy scars.  The younger ones who gave as well, and who still give, could be included too, just by a photo's choosing; so let us not omit youth particularly a youth the gives - maybe even before its time.  As luck, or chance, or meaning would have it, this man in this photo represents the many who gave, and the many who give - by an assignment of these words to celebrate a cause, to celebrate a people, to celebrate a holiday.  As a veteran he gave, she gave, they gave - and these ones continue to give in what it is that makes living life here - possible!  Duty may have called.  Honor may have created the principled stance.  Whatever it is or was - it is different to give as a veteran did and does. #thanks  PHOTO CREDIT:  Michael Schaffler,
