Busy and tired


Slow down time

I am finally better enough (recovering from this horrid cold)to do things, and
I've been going all day, so I'm going to use a former post that seems fitting. 

"I like this drawing of my son Sam from 8 (now 12) years ago.  
He was talking to me on Skype at the end of the day, and was getting
up and biking to work at a Starbucks to open the store at 5 in the
morning.  He was tired, like we all are now. 

Things looked up for him after this.  He moved into a house with a
bunch of kids he liked, and had fun for the rest of his university studies.
And now he is happily married, so it all worked out. What I like about
the drawing is the fact that he is listening. And he's good at it.  

It seems to me, living in a family of talkers.  As teachers, actors,
project managers, film directors, writers -- we know how to talk.
That is a lucky break for us.  And at this time in our world, it's
also important to listen.  Hear what people are saying, and figure
out what to do. And that's about all of it."  

We need to listen to one another and be compassionate.

Have a loving your life day.
