Small Business Saturday

30 Nov

It’s Small Business Saturday, and while I have a new small business, I began to think of what that really means.

I chose a course which seems to be the road less traveled…publishing my own book. In this day of conglomerates and powerhouses, it was certainly a path of choice. It spoke to my heart…a semblance of foundation…little bricks mortared in strength.

So, not just today, but often, support your local shops, stores, and services.

The Advantage of Trains

5 Dec

I am often amazed at the differences in people.  One of note lately is how others react to a train interrupting their commute.  On a less traveled side street to and from work, the train tracks are often occupied, more often on my route home.  As the crossing bars take their place in keeping cars at bay, I take my place in wait.

While others scour, do hasty U-turns, and inch their way in anticipation, I choose to savor the disruption.  I take in the sky, noting as clouds make their passage.  In observation, I watch as grasses cower to the wind.  Of late, the sunset offers its orange glow amid each fleeting railcar.  I relish the moment of pause and the sounds become a joyful noise.

That intrusion into others’ time has become a valued inclusion in mine.
