By Ted Grussing
… it was, it really was … many things planned for today and I guess I got quite a bit done, but with no deadlines, no pressures to get anything done, I just kind of relaxed and every time I thought I should do something, I deliberately didn’t do it. It felt good, it did. Think I took what we used to call Grussing Holidays; when the girls were young, once and a while we would just declare a Grussing Holiday. The girls skipped school and Corky and I cancelled appointments and closed the Law Office for a day or so and we had a terrific family day … at the beach, on the ocean, over to Catalina or Santa Barbara. We chucked responsibilities and had a fun day or so and the girls got their notes to get back in school and we had fun memories to look back on. And then we would do it again and we all benefited from it.
So that is about what I did today … One, got a half hour outside and so did I. Today will be a responsible day whatever that is … it will be fun and filled with joy for sure.
I put this image together tonight … the narrow path … bridge between worlds, whatever, I just like the feel of it. The pine tree is in a lava field near Sunset Crater; that is an area that inspires the mind to open up.
Have a terrific day today … that time of year when eyes turn to the heavens and the wonder of forever takes center stage. We are blessed to be living on this wonderful little planet and to look to the heavens and wonder and to have family and friends to share our joy with … if only for a few days before reality sets back in.
Cheers and Merry Christmas
A bird flies through the sky, and I fly with it. I am each pearl of moisture sparkling in the sun.
I lie lazy on the clouds. And I acknowledge my kinship with each winged thing.
I see all as one, and nothing repels me, as this new day climbs noiselessly out of the valley of the
Peace lies over the world and over the world of my soul.
