A Thought for Today
Only the seed the old
tree drops to start another cycle is of importance.
Rod is on the road for a
couple of weeks and will be back with you sometime during August.
I gave an old man with some
packages a lift. Though his thumb had not been extended he seemed grateful. We rode
together near an hour without exchanging words. On reflection I would have welcomed
conversation though I made no attempt to initiate a dialogue and didn't feel uncomfortable
without one. Finally he spoke and said "I get off here". I stopped, he got off
and neither of us waved. It seemed an altogether civilized exchange. Will I forget to
talk, except to birds? An altogether enticing thought to a cat man.
