some people who seek further enlightenment, as do I, and it is nice to
share our adventures and compare observations. With them, I can converse
in philosophical terms.
When I saw Bill at John’s violin shop today, he asked how my world was.
I answered, “The cosmos is in harmonious balance.”
He responded, “The cosmos is always in perfect balance and harmony.”
he is right. To think that the cosmos is out of whack, would be the
result of faulty perception. The cosmos remains harmonious. Any discord
resides in skewed observations.
have remarked that it is easy for me to have this lofty, enlightened,
point of view because my life is ‘easy’. I agree. I love my life. It is
easy. I wake up each morning and thank God for this remarkable, grand,
and wondrous, experience we call life.
I freely admit

obligated to do so if we have the means and capacity. I think that
protecting the environment from our own destructive actions is possible.
To that end, I am active in several movements to stop the mining,
drilling, transporting, and burning of fossil fuels. I love this place,
and contrary to the Fox News campaign of climate change misinformation,
our human activities are having a deleterious effect on earth's
environment. We can stop trashing this place.

This little ¾

pink, girls guitar that was over at Sandi and Stuart’s when I was there
for Thanksgiving dinner. I used it to play and sing songs with the
Taylor grandkids. We expressed harmonious energy.
