Cornwall ON – My wife is a superstitious sort. She likes to wear Evil Eye bracelets and has a myriad of habits, some I’d swear she makes up. We both lost very dear friends lately; perhaps it’s the age we’re entering, our mid-forties, but it makes me stop and ponder how fleeting we all are on this humble blue marble we all share?
We bicker; we argue, we do too many things that probably aren’t terribly good for us in the name of …..fun; we develop these habits; I think societally, that certainly don’t extend our visit in this ethereal sphere.
There are so many unexplained phenomena; many that never will be explained. As I drove my wife through a May snow storm to the airport to fly off to a funeral this morning I had a lot of time to think, and on the ride home; watching the sun come up I had even more.
Why do we as human beings generally need to know so many darn answers to questions? That was one of the things I thought about. And why do I not watch enough of these stunning sun rises; especially as I’m usually up for them although always busy prepping news for all of us?
I think I realized that for me; at least for today; I’m not enjoying or taking enough time to enjoy a stunningly beautiful and free sunrise.
