(1) After waking up ornery over this & that, I figured a two mile run would set me straight. What I noticed afterward is that everything I was mad about was easily resolved simply by overlooking the offense. Scripture says: “A person’s insight gives them patience, and it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.” (Proverbs 19:11). Different people are offended by different things. Just because someone offended me, doesn’t mean that they’re wrong. Thankful for insight. Thankful for running. Thankful for letting go.
(2) Got a new column published in Spokane. That makes 24 now in that one city, including one in the Spokesman-Review.
(3) Sitting at the Round Table, I saw all four of the Sullivans all come in at once. Of course, you probably don’t know who the Sullivans are, but it’s always a joy to see such a well-adjusted, happy family.
(4) Had a great session with Keva yesterday. I taught her the singing part to Now That There’s You, and we did a new version of “I Am the Blues” which she and I had both regarded as a practice take. Slowed it down to a smoky smooth jazz groove, and that chanteuse knows exactly what she’s doing. I’d be jealous if I weren’t so grateful.
(5) Last I checked, I’ve already received $1050 toward the $1500 goal of my fundraiser. Danielle’s been holding the money for me, for which I’m glad. Also, Zazen and Matt both came back to the team last week. Things are looking up, and I’m grateful.
