    Around The bend

    I know that this isn't much
    Just a few words in a rhyme
    But I hope this cheers you up
    And makes this worth your time
    When the world seems against you
    And all you see is grey
    When all the good seems far and few
    I only have one thing to say
    Always treasure your life
    Look forward to what's around the bend
    Even when nothing goes right
    Bad things aren't set in cement

    While watching a video of the Bullet Train, in Japan, I learned the obvious.....that it had to be built on flat level farmland so it could travel in a straight line....with no curves. A 200 mph, "bullet life" is not for me.

    As we move through life, we find that there's always a bend in the road up ahead. We never know if on the other side of the berry bush, awaits a black bear or ....a laughing lass. The truth is there is always something waiting for us around the bend.

    The beauty of it is that each of us has a different curve in a different road.....waiting up ahead, to face! I don't know what this diary will turn out to be, will just have to wait and see. Like Anne, I expect it to be "the best".

    Here is Dave Brubeck being interviewed at the piano, by Clint Eastwood. It 'made my day'!

    The Bend in the Road - by Georges Schreiber

    "During the Second World War, the United States Navy commissioned Schreiber to create paintings to use as posters. When fellow artists criticized him for this kind of work, Schreiber replied that 'art for artís sake' should be shelved for the duration of the war and voiced his approval of any medium which brought good art to great numbers of people."

    Meanderer, I ran across this picture and thought of your journal title. Did/do you ever do much fishing?

    Up and over and around the bend...

    I might have gone fishing...... Nancy, I am not a fisherman, but did tag along for some fly fishing, while at Fort Dix NJ. I found it boring.
