Local Election Comments -


Since the election, several rumbles have been heard in local politics. 
Here are a few that have caught my eye.

Our local politicos have agreed to the building of a very large home 
on the 2500 beach front block of N. Ocean Blvd..Many of us thought 
that perhaps the State might intervene. This house will be built.

Although voters agreed to the Public approval of ALL Public projects
on both sides of the Intracoastal, the city is now arguing for strict 
interpretation! This means that approved recreational use would 
exclude food concessions and gift shops. (Gumbo Limbo). Perhaps
restrooms should be closed...

The Chabad project off of E Palmetto has been blocked by the court.

Comments are welcome!

Thanksgiving Day - Reflecting - "Interview with God"

I dreamed I had an interview with God -

"So you would like to interview me?" God asked.
"If you have the time" I said.

God smiled. "My time is eternity."
"What questions do you have for me?"

"What surprises you the most about mankind?"

God answered...
"They get bored with childhood,
they rush to grow up,
and then long to be children again."

"That they lose their health
to make money...
and then lose their money
to restore their health."

"That by thinking axiously about the future,
they forget about the present,
such that they live
niether in the present
nor the future."  

That they live as if they will never die,
and die as if they never lived."

God's hand took mine
and we were silent for a while.

And then I asked...
"As a parent, what are some of life's lessons
you want your children to learn?"

"To learn they cannot make anyone love them.
All they can do is let themselves be loved."

"To learn that it is not good
to compare themselves to others."

"To learn to forgive
by practicing forgiveness."

"To learn that it only take a few seconds
to open profound wounds in those they love,
and it can take many years to heal them."

"To learn that a rich person,
is not one who has the most
but is one who needs the least."

"To learn that there are persons
who love them dearly,
but simply have not yet learned
how to express or show their feelings."

"To learn that two people can
look at the same thing
and see it differently."

"To learn that it is not enough that they
forgive one another, but they must also forgive themmselves."

"Thank you for your time," I said humbly.

"Is there anything else
you would like your children to know?"

God smiled and said,
"Just know that I am here... always."
