The Spirit

Spirituality for me is found in the questions, if you stop questioning are you still spiritual? I think spirituality is pervasive, it must bind your humanity together, the physical, the mental, your health, your soul, the human being. Like the mortar in concrete binds rock, stones, pebbles, sand together to make a strong bond. I do practice a particular faith but I find a lot of people confuse religiosity with spirituality and for me I would rather be defined by my spirit than by my religion.

What does God want for us? I think He wants us to be the best versions of ourselves we can be. Everyday we should wake up and say - "OK self, what do I need to do today to be the best Me I can?" Could you imagine a world where everyone did that? Wow.

I used to have a fish at work... Well, first I had "Flash", then "Flashback", then "Trey". I found it quite relaxing to have him there. After a while it would seem that the fish would start interacting a little bit with me. Would swim toward you when you talked to them, etc. I think it was Flash who lived the longest, he was around for ~ 1.5 years, his predecessors did not fair as well. Flashback lived ~1 year and then Trey only ~ 6 months. It just didn't seem right to get another one. With the trend I was setting he probably would only have lasted ~ 3 months. There are still times when I have thought of getting another but better sense prevails. I'm not sure if a life in a mud puddle somewhere is better than in a bowl on my desk but at least the mud puddle is their natural environment. There is something very relaxing about watching fish swim around though. I wonder what it is? Perhaps their fluidness instills a sense of freedom in the viewer...

Here it is December 6th and I haven't had a post all month... Why not? I guess just too busy! I love this time of year. The weather is so much nicer than the summer months. You can grow things and they live :o) I can ride a bike and not die :o) I can take my pup to the park and she won't die :o) I love Christmas, the decorations, the family, etc. I have started to put up Christmas decorations but am still not done yet. No tree... I'll wait till maybe next weekend. I do have a "real" wreath on my front door. I love how it makes the entry smell so nice! I'll do more during the week. I need to recruit my boys to help. But most of the time trying to get them to do something is so draining that it is easier to just not ask...

I'll try and post more often - and more photos!
