Inquisitions, Cookies and Coffee

Posted on

102214_1546_TimeandSpac1.jpgMorning arrived right on time and woke Mr. Bladder, who in turn woke me to greet the new day.  That is not my preferred method of greeting the day, but no one consulted with me. Pity. I think I could do mornings in a more civilized way.

40’s and gray this morning as Snook and her retinue of canines happily go out for their morning game of tennis ball.  It is a good time to filch a couple of cookies along with a fresh cup, and skulk back to the studio without an audience.

But as a man of faith I note that happiness does not flow from government.  While I much prefer to live with liberty, joy can be found in the most miserable of circumstances if one has faith, and joy can flee in the gentlest of circumstances if one doesn’t have faith.  At the peak of my prosperity, I wanted to die.  Here in the autumn of days, I find joy and peace.

I really didn’t do much with my life, I muse.  My failures greatly outnumbered my successes, and I disappointed many.  But the divine imperative ever pushes me on to my destiny to join the rest of humanity in sleep, then truth.  Will I know? Possibly.

So I sip my coffee, munch on a sugar cookie, and ponder.

Good morning!

    You get what so many don’t. That is my favorite part of this post.

    My other favorite part is you and the cookies for breakfast 😉

      Yeah, but it isn’t my good points that give me grief … 😛

    This is how I see it … and it’s simple … remembering the past doesn’t mean reliving the past.

      It is so funny how in unexpected moments a long ago insult will rise up in my mind, and suddenly I get angry all over again …
