It’s all in the preparation
David Conrad
Barber: Adagio for strings or Staple: Fists Afire
Celery and pimiento cheese or a large bowl of ‘breyers
Bike ride around the lake or football and the perfect spiral
A neighborhood with actual trees, the world minus the tyrants
A love for those I should hate and the confidence to show it
Discernment enough to see the hate and wisdom to dismiss it
………….the guy in front of me driving 5 miles over, those in the fast lane kindly pulling over
The clerk at the store knowing all they are paid to know, having answers to my questions so that I can go
The person behind me in line not feeling compelled to divulge her grievances to me, No, I’ am not a soothsayer, I ‘don’t see’
Some philanthropist leaving me millions in his will, but if not,
Enough in the account to pay this months bills
But, wait………I’m becoming side tracked, so let me rewind,
though all of the above is beautiful in my mind.
Of course, I can always have that beautiful day and not have that urge to murmur,
If I took the time that morning to get dressed,……..in the full armor.

Indeed, a good reminder that we need to be prepared. Thought-provoking.

Not sure how to classify this work, perhaps as prayerful thought.
