cakap cakap. ME.
When I sit down to write I do so respecting those of you that read what I write. This means I do not try to preach, nor do I try to shock or awe you into believing what I write. Always I make it clear that it is my point of view.
I write with the constant refrain in my head that those who will take time to read what I write and do so because I have something interesting to say on life, family, politics, and what else is on my mind. And for that I am grateful.
This blog is a work in progress and it has been a work in progress since it started and will continue to be one for God knows how long more – because I, me and myself, at age 73, I too am a work in progress – albeit a living, breathing, work in progress.
I often post articles and comments that I do not necessarily agree with because what I think is immaterial. What matters is that we are the better for reading it. Even if you disagree with me we can agree to disagree civilly.
If you can banish from your life greed, but not kindness, arrogance, but not humility, avarice, but not your sense of caring for those less fortunate than you, jealousy, but not love for others, I can assure you that life would be better. I have almost banished three of the five that I have just mentioned…which three is for me to know and for you to find out – but even with just those three banished from my life, it has done me much good.
A cup of Nescafe enjoyed in the quiet hours of early morning as I reflect upon the day just past and the day to come with “A Whiter Shade of Pale” wafting around my head as the music plays in my head through the headphones, what bliss. And as my feet tap in time to the music my spirits are lifted and my heart and mind are sated with life.
What more can life give me today? My cup runneth over.
