Kerfuffles and calm: from stress to beauty

Yesterday was a frantic Friday of deadlines, paperwork, kerfuffles, soiled friendships and union politics, watching the plays of silliness, especially my own. 

So much  to do!  So many personalities involved, most of them full of love, some of them dripping poison.  Paper, paper, paper and more paper!  Signatures!  Faxes!  Deliveries!  Social engagements!  I shall spare you the details, gentle reader!  Suffice it to say, I drove home with scarcely a shred of serenity left to my name.

Near dusk my wife and I went for a walk and I poured out my troubles.  She said let it go, and I did, and I noticed this sky.  I ran for my camera. 

We walked up the hill.  The air was cool and moist; the light was magnificent.  I soon forgot the drama and with my camera caught some moments of light and color and carried them back to share with you, dear reader.  May they bring you the same joy and peace I found at the end of my day.

    Aaaahhh!! I didn’t vote! I was sick! I hope my personality wasn’t analyzed…

    • John Mears says:

      Yes, Rosana, we did analyze you. Verrrrrry interesting. Just kidding of course, but we had a good time. We’ll have an even better time at the party coming up. Watch your box!

    Word of the day: kerfuffle – a commotion or fuss, esp. one caused by conflicting views.

    Thank you = )

    Hey John,
    The photos are so beautiful…. Beautiful is delightful and truthful. Beautiful is great.

    Your autobiographical stories touched my heart…..

      Wow, Narine, your note touched me. I’m very glad you connected with my blog. If you have time, check out “Lifelong learning” (my latest post). You will probably get it, being a fellow adult educator.
