Today is the day I begin a special journal,
dedicated to spiritual introspection and renewal,
sort of a slap in the face wake up call
to realign my energies to a peace
with where I live, what I do, and whom I am with.
Because when I have those three major items
in line and true to who I am, my life,
no matter what the challenges,
always falls back together into harmony.
But naive as I am I opened the door
barely a crack and a double uppercut
slammed a nasty cold into my head
followed by a one-two-punch of a
whacking hacking cough cough.
Lesson number one.
The next time you go outside, Jim,
to scrape the windshield and warm up the car,
put on your hat and coat.
