"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

Humor's Smile

It looks like 2006 is going to be one of those daily calendars of life lessons for me. One of those calendars that say things like "To be held, you must first open your hands." Then tear off the date and you get "If you feel dizzy, you might want to try breathing." Its kind of funny, in the sense that the universe has decided I am thick headed and has decided to give me a kick in the rear just so I'd get it already. Anyway, here is the life lesson for the day.

MSW Supervisor: GoGo, you are a very self-reliant person.
GoGo: Thanks.
MSW Supervisor: I'm sorry I did not see through it all before.
GoGo: What?
MSW Supervisor: What do you think you get from appearing self-reliant?
GoGo: Don't suppose you take looking like Ralph Waldo Emerson as an answer, would you?
MSW Supervisor: No
GoGo: (In my head) Crap.

*My Co-workers think I need to post that Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote the Essay
