February 18, 2019-
Upon returning from southern California, I reflected on three conversations I had there, yesterday and today.
The matter of personal finance is a tricky one.
One must, however, listen to and take the best
from all schools of thought,
then apply to own circumstances.
Travel is a broadening experience.
It must not, however, be done in
an undisciplined manner,
nor in lieu of a more challenging
and necessary course of business.
No matter how far one is from
a place where one is meant to be,
there will appear a connection,
between people and things that
are important in a home situation,
and those who are encountered
in another place,
which one is meant to visit.
At breakfast this morning,
in a place called Gramma’s Country Kitchen,
where I have sat, numerous times,
at the counter,
and enjoyed a warm meal,
with an even warmer welcome,
I heard another voice of reason.
He said that building barriers,
and setting rules for air and water,
in one place,
will not amount to a hill of beans,
when across a short distance,
conditions opposite to one’s own,
I bid farewell to Mr. Wing,
and drove, without incident,
to the place I call Home Base.
