I wonder why I am so surprised when an old computer, appliance, heating and air conditioning unit, as well as, a half dozen other home apparatus breaks down? Do I forget how long I had it for and how well it served me?
No! I act like I am a victim of the universe and pout. I have certainly lived long enough to understand that nothing is permanent in this world. There should be a blinking neon sign over the top of everything in this life reminding us that Everything and Everyone is temporary…Get Over It!
I am slowly realizing that a “New Now” arrives with each tick of the clock. I need to change my attitude and grab the moment…instead of playing the permanent role of Eeyore!
I came across this quote that made me smile with some added wisdom.
“If you can change it, there is no reason to worry about it…if you can not change it…there’s no reason to worry about it.”
In the title drawing…we see one of the earliest “tech” inventions by mankind…the wheel. Think about the implications of this innovation….now man could pull and later let animals pull essential food supplies to gatherings, rocks and bricks to build pyramids, and armies to battle…for every invention there is a negative…depending on how man is chooses to use thought processes…for good or evil.
Today this is still true…the new technical age can unite the world as one in communication or destroy the world…only man can decide.
Another lesson I have learned going through this transition is that “When God solves our problems we have faith in His abilities; when God doesn’t solve our problems, He has faith in OUR abilities.” (That’s a lot of pressure God…but I am trying.)
So until tomorrow…
I want to be more comfortable being uncomfortable…to be more confident while uncertain. I want to push back to make room between ‘I Can’t and “I Can”… a place called “I WILL!”

Quite honestly…I can acclimate to any “New Now” world as long as it has cookies in it…and award-winning paintings about cookies a.k.a. Anne Peterson! Congratulations on your “Cookie Love”- winning the Community Choice Award at the Public Works Art Center’s “Love Letters” Exhibition!
