Watch the dawn


I’ll be on sabbatical from the cyberspace for two and a half weeks. Cheri and I will leave today  to attend our Rotary District Conference; return home,  then fly to the East Coast for  the graduation of her niece.
There are books to read, mind jottings, and fellowship and family talks.
Behind every change is an opportunity to listen and see new things and old. The old holds experience. The sages say acceptance can take a very long time and after many quests.
After Gilgamesh returned home from his quest:
“When at last they arrived, Gilgamesh
said to Urshanabi, ‘This is
the wall of Uruk, which no city on earth can equal.
See how its ramparts gleam like copper in the sun.
Climb the stone staircase, more ancient than the mind can imagine,
....’  ”

Brave the world. Watch the dawn.
