I am not an island

This sightseeing boat, Hama Yuri, was pulled 1300 feet from the coast and somehow balanced itself on a two story house during the tsunami in Japan.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the power of words; but I must be careful to use that power in a positive way

for little reminders that I shouldn't take myself too seriously

for the synchronicity of timelines (the order in which life happens)

that the "blues" I wrote about yesterday are not unique to me.  My Roundup Co-Chair is experiencing exactly the same feelings and I spoke to a few of the people who have Co-Chaired in years past and they all (without exception) had the same feelings.  Whew! 

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor.
It's to enjoy each step along the way.
- Wayne Dyer

I also like the philosophy of dancing that the purpose is not for you to be the most dazzling on the floor but to dance in a manner that supports your partner in his best effort.

It sounds as if the "blues" are passing my friend, as they often do? I surely hope so, be well!

Wow. That must be like the post-marathon depression that I get. Spending a year getting ready for something and then having it over is a challenge.

You will sail through my friend, because, as you know, this too shall pass.

I agree with MC--all that adrenalin and purposeful working towards a goal. Then, voila, it is done and over. Coast on the good feelings of a job well done. Take care, Dave.

Same way I feel after the last of a 6-week 48-performance show.

(...and on the 7th day he rested?)

About that boat--it's a good time to repair and paint the hull!
