Your Dying Spouse 732 - Changes in Attitudes

This was written early in 2020, before my voice went away for good, but I think, and hope, that it might still be worth reading.

It's been an extraordinarily rough couple of weeks here. The tumour in the navel is really spoiling the beach-body, the one in the neck is making swallowing something I have to think about (try it, it ain't fun), and...

...Barb got the flu. And then, so did I, which can be really, really dangerous (especially with no medical care...did I really think this through?). (This predates the 'coronavirus' thing.)

I got so sick I had to back off the sonnets, and wrote haiku instead.

And those seasonally-centered seventeen-syllable throwaways changed me.

I was challenged to look at life from a very different perspective, one that's built around the dynamic tension of the seasonal year that God ordained.

There is inevitability, but there's also grace.

It's all about what we choose to carry.

The heart that carries summer within it
will never know
winter chill

Music from George Harrison, with My Sweet Lord.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.

  1. You should see how my friend Wesley Virgin's autobiography begins in this SHOCKING and controversial video.

    Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he found hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the government and others used to get everything they want.

    THESE are the EXACT same methods many celebrities (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become rich and famous.

    You've heard that you use only 10% of your brain.

    That's because most of your brain's power is UNTAPPED.

    Perhaps this expression has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about seven years back, while riding an unregistered, beat-up trash bucket of a car without a license and on his banking card.

    "I'm very fed up with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I get my big break?"

    You've taken part in those thoughts, am I right?

    Your success story is waiting to start. Go and take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
