Growing



Friend's grandma suffers incontinence, friend's suffers poor sleep and emotional stress. Grandpa lost 3 more teeth - he's more than 90yo - family suffers temporary worry bout.

Growing old's such a terrible thing. I used to tell myself I don't want to live too long - until someone pointed out that meant dying in your prime. Hmph, life offers much more than worrying about the inevitable.

Truly, we never know what's gonna be hurled at us. But when things are going well for one, can one ignore the plight of others? As Luke reminds us "...for everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required..."

En commute to work this afternoon, a 15yo beng sitting behind was going on loudly in chinese about his shi fu and his friend wasting his time. Crude mocking and playful wrestling inclusive.

I'm not ranting, really. Just wondering what brings one fulfillment and focus?
