A Long, long Road

My life seems to be about correcting mistakes at this point.
I’m actually glad to be aware of my mistake.
I didn’t see things that I now see. I value things that I didn’t even know we’re things to value.
I see people’s intentions and their motivations even when they don’t.
It’s sad a lot if the time because the degree of pain that is caused when people’s motives are based on greed, ego, jealousy, or rivalry is beyond words. It can be so harmful within families especially because it is assumed family members care.
To be mislead, to be tricked, to be scorned and put down and undermined by someone you think is looking out for your best interest is very harmful. That is the intention though. In families there is subtle and not so subtle rivalry. It can be devastating.
If someone is jealous of what you have and it makes them uncomfortable, instead of looking at themselves they put you down, undermine what you have accomplished.
Family, ….. Life’s greatest source of character building and opportunity to overcome and rise above negative, deadly, painful and destructive forces.

Words

It’s funny, I think about writing, about putting my thoughts out there, then I stop. Anything I say or any stand I take on any issue or topic, is pointless to write about. Anything can be argued on either side depending on a persons bias.
What does it matter what I say? I like the idea that words don’t make any difference really. If we didn’t talk so much we might understand each other better.

Canon Balls?

Only in BC! This is a true story my friend told me. He works in logging and on one trip out to work he was doing his log scaling and got a message from the mill. One of the logs that had gone there had damaged the saw blade. The log had a cannon ball lodged in it and since it was so old the tree had grown around it, so it was completely hidden. When the saw hit it, crack!
To put it in other words, it had to be over 200 years ago, ships sailed along the coast and for reasons unknown, fired at the shore. This canon ball was destined to tell its story.
