November 3, 2016, Prescott- I went to work this morning, and got word of a major change coming. It won’t affect me, directly, in terms of my earning a paycheck, every two weeks. How it will affect me, as to work assignment, is very much unknown, at this point. The person most directly affected by the change is, understandably, putting up a bit of resistance. I don’t see that ending well, but it’s best for me to just stay out of it and focus on the children.
After work, I went to a lovely Baha’i gathering, by way of visiting, for the first time, the home of some friends, who live east of Prescott Valley. The host had each of us tell the person to our right, something nice about him/her, while clasping hands and looking the person in the eye. This small act brought a smile to each recipient of the tribute. It occurs to me that it’s not done enough.
Such an exchange occurred ONCE, during the debates between the two major Presidential candidates. It would do my heart good if, the day that the people’s choice is clear and accepted, the two major candidates would repeat this exchange. I’m not waiting with bated breath, but it’d do my heart good.
Let’s all set the tone, as citizens. Find something good to say about a perceived opponent or rival- and tell the person.
