Mag 148, 12/16/12, Roads
















Photo by Andy Magee


        The roads of life up and down, twine and whine under tires.
Flow and float where you can, taking side routes when possible.
      I am grateful today for warmer weather, my friends, family.
We may see ice later, but for now I can smile and enjoy
the Peace- Season and music!  Saying a prayer for those 
in grief and pain . 
      Hope everyone is able to find some Joy and Hope in their
celebrations.

And sometimes roads are uphill all the way...

Izzy, you always have a knack of saying what I and others would say. And you write it with your heart-pen!

Also, when the road ahead continued uphill for many years, I found it was that I was afraid to "cross the Divide....."

Please--NOT to minimize the lives of some who live with no hope....(but just ask!)

It's a hard time of peace, but I like your advice to take 'side routes when possible' and to be grateful for small things. Peace.
