No Need to Resolve

Trouble sleeping for the second consecutive night. Many unresolved personal and work issues whizzing around in my head seeking resolution. I feel like a robot with too many unresolvable issues to solve waving its arms madly like in "Lost in Space" saying "Does not compute........ does not compute...........does not compute......." until it emits smoke and sparks and shuts down.

I am trying to calm my mind by telling it to accept that not all issues can be resolved, well not right now at least, and if they can be resolved it will happen at the appropriate time and is best achieved with a calm mind.

Also to accept calmly that resolved issues often unresolve themselves and new issues will continually arise. It is simply the nature of life.

Henry

His wide bony shoulders the only remnants of this once wide set heavily built man. His fragile skeleton held precariously together by unseen frayed tendons and worn cartilage. He moved along the ageing suburban footpath at a rate of one small step every minute or so. His walking stick keeping him upright.

"Henry?" I called from a slight distance so as not to startle him and with a questioning tone, not sure if this was the man I remembered from my childhood. As I approached he lifted his head and dark skin sagged from his skeleton face. He peered at me through his thick glasses and smiled and said "Hello handsome". I smiled back.

Beautiful Day Number 9551


When I am surfing by myself I often seem to sing "Time for a Cool Change" by The Little River Band
