With the advent of ATM and debit cards, Facebook and bloggersvilles, Forums and remote banking we have become very familiar with the term ‘Password.’
If you are not an exception you have forgotten at least one of your many passwords. The search becomes frantic at times, when the site continually says User name and Password do not match. The smile finally comes when the site says WELCOME BACK JACK!
As I thought about passwords today (because I forgot one) I thought how many times in life I have forgotten my ‘Password’ to happiness. Construing that to mean anything that locks me out of my pleasant time of relaxing and smelling the roses.
The times that stress or the weight of the world seems to be on your shoulder and you want to sing, “Make the world go away, take it off my shoulder’. (stealing from an old CW song.) Okay, What finally did it for you? What was the password?
I know what Pauline’s password is, IT IS “A ride on a country road.”
Some folk’s password is a guitar or piano. I have took note of Rick’s up in Alabam, his is stopping by a scenic lake or sitting on the back porch of an old house.
For Sherry and I it has varied over the years. The BEST Password was just a long walk, conversation and putting things in perspective.
Driving in the mountains. Backpacking, a beautiful remote waterfall or a simple campfire.
One password was a complete surprise. I wandered into a library years ago and picked up a set of headphones wired to the old reel to reel tape players, sat and listened to Mozart. WOW I was blown away, I am a country western guy. I sat and enjoyed an introduction to a new ‘password’ I have used many times on cruises away from my family.
When things get really tough, I bring out the password, Sherry!
Have you ever forgotten your password to peace and happiness?
I will continue along these lines tomorrow. I have read a couple great books I want to talk about.
I have pickups on my mind. Pauline has given me permission to use a couple of her poems ‘bout Cowboys and Cowgirls in my next book. Any reference to Cowboys references the Pickup and horse. I am a happy writer.
