For some reason today, my mind seems to be on fire. My eyes burn, my ears aren’t filtering out noise, and everything seems to be so loud! I’ve hidden myself away in a quiet room, trying to find peace in the moment and get work done that I need to get done. So many things are on my mind, though, that I can’t focus on just one thing and get it done.
So many things plague me – are nagging at my mind and heart: I want to serve mightily, to publish more books, and to figure out the commodities markets. The cause of the markets’ patterns are so elusive, though. Right there in front of me one minute and then bouncing around out of range the next. It’s almost as if I’m chasing a mirage. Trying to catch smoke in my hand. That’s what it feels like some days. Trying to come together in some sense but then coming unglued again. The pieces don’t fit together nicely for some reason, yet.
My hearing seems enhanced today – much like every other day of my life. Teaching in the classroom at school was deathly at times. I’ve tried to explain it to people, but some just don’t understand. So, it felt like the discussion a monologue, responded to with glazed over stares.
So many times, people are just trite in life. They only focus on the immediate, the here and now, and the ‘id’ part of existence. They seem to forget that there’s a whole other part of life that involves real living. Living happily. Finding joy in the things we do every day that will piece together this thing we call “life” and help make it make sense.
I know that nothing makes sense without God. The foundation of the Earth was set at his command, and he built it the way he did on purpose. That’s really the only thing that makes this life bearable. Knowing that He’s there in the midst of all the crap we deal with makes it all worthwhile. Without him, it wouldn’t be worthwhile at all.

One thought on “Thoughts from a few weeks ago”
Enjoyed reading some of your post. If you ever figure the markets out send me a hot tip. I use to ride the bus with you when I was a Kid back in WL days.
