One of a kind:
Some thoughts for today:
I have come
to a place in life where noises and crowds confuse me. Today I sat in church
and listened to a lot of good advice. It is seldom I hear enough to actually
know the deep thoughts of some speakers.
However today, was different. The speaker was demonstrative, that is, he
did move some, used his hands and arms as he spoke. He used a level of his
voice so that I understood MUCH of what he said. It really feels good.
I am amazed
at the speakers today who have NO IDEA how many people actually understand what
is said. There are a lot of reasons for
this. Some are TOO LOUD, some do not

Above she is going under a dead fall across the trail.
Family situations have slid my starting date from Jan 17th to Jan 23rd. The latest date is now the 26th of January. I hope there is no more delay. Already there are 25-35 people registered to start before me. Two will start on the same day. I may see them or I may not, there is no set time to begin in the day. However, I do hope to start in the morning of the first day.
