The road ahead

How does one put the thoughts and concerns screaming through the mind of a son whose mother is ending her run in this world? Whether it comes sooner or years down the road of life, we have seen the tunnel which we all must travel through.

During the travels which we go through in life there are many roads we follow, most of the time we know the direction to go. Other times the road ahead is under construction, or when we least expect it, it is in total destruction. Most of the time, we have control, we know where we are going and can control the outcome of the latest adventure and even the one ahead.

Sometimes though, life throws a blind curve at us, one which even though we should have seen coming at us, totally throws us out of  the lane we were traveling. We careen around trying to regain control, over steering and sometimes loosing control of our path. Sometimes we totally loose our way. This is when Family comes in to save the day, to help us regain control.

It is time now for our family to ride in like the Calvary, and help my Mother out of the trench she has fallen into. After all, she has done the same for her family countless times. We have all done our best to help and support her during her detour. We have done the natural thing and tried to minimise the trauma of her accident, to make it understandable. 

Now it is time to understand the severity of this course change.

A ton of bricks...

Yesterday was a slow rainy type of day. I had a couple things I wanted to do, but no real schedule to keep and the sky was gray.
I was flowing from task to task, doing what had to be done: editing pictures, getting ready for Sunday’s post. Trying to figure out how to connect this laptop to the TV and still work on other stuff, and planning, in my mind the next step in filling the shed out back. 
You know, floating around yet accomplishing stuff. 
I stepped outside and looked around when it hit me…this would be a perfect time for a joint. The thought just leaked into my thinking.
I shuck my head, boy, that one hit my brain hard. 
I have not even thought about getting high for ages. (Note here: I have had some beer and even a tequila or two, but that is as far as it goes) I was in a good place in my mind and doing things at my pace and leisure, it just felt right to smoke one. I was thinking that it would “mellow” me out a little, maybe help to loosen my shoulders some.

A smoking thought.
