Anticipation…

Tarot Gardens.jpgAnticipation is a key defense mechanism. When I near the corner of a building in a bad part of town, I’m ready to react. Likewise, when I’m walking in the woods, I prepared to see wildlife, or a hiker, but not something…SHOCKINGLY funny. (The Tarot Garden in Italy).

There’s a lesson here. Maybe it’s “don’t squeeze too hard when a gentle touch is all that is required. ” Nope, that’s not it. How about?  “Know your surroundings like you know yourself.”Closer, but still not it. I’ll get back to you…tomorrow.

Waiting…

DSC_0030 (2)Yesterday evening California’s Capital Park was surrounded by prom-goers. Off to the side I spotted one young lady waiting, presumably for a ride. I was on a walk with my son and his family at the time, reminding them that that there was no internet when I went to my prom…last century, but there were cars and waiting…that will always exist.
