today pinto, mister jones, the universe, and my intuition taught me a valuable lesson. lessons, actually. i learned about the clove hitch, and i learned about love. the clove hitch is a valuable thing to know….because….i was wondering why my string-beaded strands i wear were stretching. and when i woke this morning with pinto lying up next to me, i knew that my irritabilities and anxieties
were are forgiven.
i read a quote this morning, and it was attributed to buddha….and to buddhist teachings….and to other philosophical writers….so who knows who or why. but, yet, it’s a lovely quote. in the end, only three things matter :: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you. a dear friend said to me you are much more easy, content….accepting, healthy, and happy truly. i believe i am changing. i believe life is changing me. i’m learning to love. fiercely. faithfully. loyally. i’m learning to live more gently, to be kinder to myself and others. and i’m learning which things are not meant for me and when it’s time to let go.
when i worked with oldtimers, one of them [or maybe it was several of them] said to me it‘s really not a day well-lived unless you learn something. i’m learning new lessons. every day. it’s good to know i am teachable.
good grand life.
