Open your mind to new and wise thoughts from a life lived over eighty years. Access the books that initiate you into such thoughts, provided you can forget the author's bad choices. Everyone messes up once in a while.
Sometimes our health fails, sometimes the failings of others obstruct our paths. We have a name for it--the way of the cross. It must come into the life of everyone who tries to do the right thing.
For me it was working toward the publication of my seventh book, and the obstacles--I call them the forces of evil-- melted away today. There is something to that saying, don't give up. Of course, there are times when it's useless to plod on.
But this wasn't one of those times. I rest tonight because the book is in editorial review, and I'm happily thinking about the promotion.
