Listing things you are grateful for is in itself a revelation.

"We shall see."


Meeting new people.
I'm a bit of a hermit. Always have been.  Meeting new people is not really my thing.  I don't make it easy.  Today I met a couple of nice people by chance.  I might even see them again.  It was a bit of fresh air.   They are dancers, as in ballroom, and invited me to come.  With my bones I said I didn't think so, but they assured me it would be fine.  "If you can walk, you can dance."  To quote the Zen master: "We shall see."

My hairdresser.
The purest soul on earth, she is.  She did my hair today.  "Please don't let other people cut your hair," she said.   I had to make it up to her.  She's just pure light and I adore her.  She's happy.  Nothing makes me happier.

The Mentalist.
It's time.  I have to go if I want to catch the next episode.

My new people may have something for me to work at.  I am still missioning with moving on from this stuck place I am in.  

No comment.


The EFF party showed up to parliament in attire worn by workers.  I suppose it's a bit out of the box being that red is the colour of the domestic worker outfit and the overalls the men wear. They stand out against the suited up others and have drawn negative comments.  It does remind us, however, to be mindful of our hired help and the difficulties that they face.

It would be a mistake, I think, not to take this party seriously.

They say we still have time to stop the Antarctic ice from melting.  But will we act in time?  We still have time to do the right thing - pay decent salaries, think of some kind of dole system that will keep people from starving if they are unemployed and improve hospitals and education.  But will we?

Everyone hates the fact that our taxes will be used to pay people who don't work, but that money will go back into the system because those who receive it will spend it.  It will also remove the desperation many experience which drives them to others only too willing to employ them. Drugs dealers and organised crime.

Although it will take some time, years perhaps, those who are ambitious will find ways to improve their lot a little more if hunger, cold, sickness and a lack of knowledge no longer occupy all of their thinking.

It takes a long time to get over things - death in the family, divorce, unfair dismissal, retrenchment and a difficult relationship.  How long will it take for the trauma of lack to leave the human soul?  As a nation we would have to give assistance to the unemployed for quite some time before we see some movement.

Thursday's note.




Concentrating on moving on.  I am evolving, I think.  I am not sure what I will be when I finally come out of this wrapping.


I am sure it is all unfolding as it must.  I finally accept that knowing everything doesn't change anything.  There are other things to do.


Smell is a lovely sense.

Tuesday Notes

Weeping -The Book Thief - movie.
Sleep - the day after the journey - weary-weary.

Moving on:
Something is singing that song .... "Time is on my side .... yes it is ..."

Syria, Ukraine, Serbia.

Just a thought

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6
