The Window Through Which We Look

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood.
The next morning while they are eating breakfast,
the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside.
"That laundry is not very clean", she said.
"She doesn't know how to wash correctly.
Perhaps she needs better laundry soap."
Her husband looked on, but remained silent.
Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry,
the young woman would make the same comments.
About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a
nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:
"Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.
 I wonder who taught her this."

The husband said, "I got up early this morning and
cleaned our windows."
And so it is with life. What we see when watching others
depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

I hope that you have a very blessed day!

G'Mornin' -- ??

Couldn't sleep. Wind gusts are horrific!

Just a while ago, our neighborhood was ripped up by it's corners - just as if God were shaking the rug. Best I can tell by looking out the windows, we're headed west-southwest at a pretty good clip. It feels ..

Wh.. there's the ocea .. OH, NO ..

Wii Made It

After a long journey, having traveled across the USA since January 1 from Ohio and being hustled and bustled, loaded and unloaded, trucked and flown, Wii finally arrived today in Oxnard. Once rather ceremoniously signed for at the door and then brought inside, Wii became subjected to a thorough inspection to ensure that Wii had arrived intact.

Following careful assembly, hookup and startup, Wii began a life of providing exercise and fun in this new home. That task will be even easier when Wii will be combining forces with the Fitness package.

Here's to 2009

Here we are - at the precipice of a year of fear yet of wonder. Past is past, but often it's reference explains now and tomorrow. We set our mood, then, by considering these words from T.S. Eliot:
“For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice.”
“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”
Asked whether we will posit a resolution for 2009, we lean again to words by another:
“Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.” Oscar Wilde
