The other night when I had to coach Lucas' soccer I needed some soccer balls. I went to the association to get some. I am so glad they have opened up this road in the day time hours. Used to be we had to walk all the way in. That isn't fun with little ones.
This is my blurry shot of the "sunset" last night. It doesn't really set enough to get dark, but it was pretty. Much nicer that my photo shows.
We have a fairly new court house built in the heart of down town right on the river with lots of groomed green park to stroll in (with a slew of vagrant drunks...isn't that always the story). It really is a beautiful building. Just wish I didn't ever have to go there.
In my time I watched the rain collect on the window and paralleled it to my life. One drop on the top slides a bit and catches another. Then another. Then another. Until they all come crashing down. So is this reflection that a person takes on a little and a little more and then a little more until they are overwhelmed and come crashing down OR is it like a family who grows bit by bit, doing more and more, until they are one collective force who are powerful? Hmmmm. Tell me your thoughts. (Or is it just damn water on the window and doesn't really parallel anything and I was just bored?).
After my day of legal stuff the sun came out on my drive home and I knew all was right with the world. I've never fought back. I've never intentionally hurt anyone, but for once I don't have to settle for making someone else happy. And if I have to take down the Universe I will. And it will not be pretty. I will not forget the wise words told to me today.... "it's time to fight back."
