I think my work life is destined to be complicated until June.
I'm getting through it but it can be rough.
Outside of work I had a big disappointment last week. Something I had hoped for will not occur and I am sad about it. I cannot say more, but, just before it became apparent that I would not get what I wanted, a man stopped me on the street - busking. He attempted the Star Spangled Banner three times until I gave him a dollar and told him it's too difficult a song.
But I want to sing for you, he said, and he did have a very beautiful voice.
Try something you're more comfortable with, I told him and he did a little hymn.
He had a bible in a black plastic bag.
I just feel like that wasn't enough to give you, he lamented.
I have a lot on my mind right now, you've given plenty, I'm distracted...I told a perfect stranger.
He was tall and had beautiful eyes.
He just looked at me for a second and said: You are blessed.
And, right now, while I stew a bit over the thing I wanted, I realized how blessed I am.
I finished a new puzzle.
Today, I'll take it apart and re-build The Majestic Lions.
The sunshine is warm, I have laundry to do.
We are looking forward to attending a wedding on May 9th and have booked a return trip to the wonderful house I took K to for his birthday.
All's well in my nest.
