Thank you Charles. It's always good to be reminded of those things that should be commonplace but are more often forgotten or neglected.

I've recently found myself taking a hard look at the things that have seemed priority to me only to find that many of the true priorities in my life are in need of some sunshine.

Dear Stone,
I live in California and the weather is not too severe. I don't have any lawn. I have about 8 trees in front, all producing fruit and nuts. Grapefruit, Almonds, Figs, Persimmons, Avacados, Apple, Pear, flowers, and herbs. My backyard has grape vines, cherry trees, 10 citrus varieties, Apple, Pear, Plum, Nectarine, Peach, Boysenberries (a blackberry type) some lettuce and other herbs.
I have an old swimming pool I turned into a fish pond, with water flowers, and large goldfish. I go out in back and can smell the fresh air from all the trees each day.
Yet I live in the city, residential area. So far the neighborhood has been good. Everyone knows everyone else on my street. It is peacful but the neighbors and I made it that way. Mixed neighborhood racially.
On a clear day I can see a mountain that rises over 10,000 feet high.
Many a day I go to my back yard look at the mountain and say to my self "Thanks boss."
On Innovation. If no one ever took risks, Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor. Neil Simon, writer.
Treasure that which you have now. Hug you wife. Caress your children. Call your parents and grandparents. We know not how long we have on this bucket. Don't let a day go by with out fixing your eyes on those you love.
Give back to your community that which has value.

Humbly yours.

Charlie

Thank you Charlie. It's good to be reminded of these things. It makes you step back, take a deep breath and examine your life. We should all slow down and enjoy this beautiful life we have.

Hello Charlie. About a month ago I had an accident and I found myself looking at life completely differently. Life is what you want it to be, even though certain things tend to drag you down, you should be greatfull for what you've got.

Dear Lex,
I hoped everyone noticed that I didn't write the little bits of wisdom. I had just thought that I would share that which has some thoughtful value. And I was right, judging from the response coming in. Apparently we have a lot of viewers on WHOLE NOTE that are not only musically gifted, but also have a certain sensitivity in their make up as mature individuals.

Charles,

Very positive approach...good contrast to my Tocqueville thread. It's all about encouraging the mind in order to return to the spirit.
