Clouds don’t worry about
falling into the sea because
they can’t (a) fall or (b) drown.
But they are free
to believe they can,
and they may fear
if they wish.

Problem seeking…

Posted in From My Brain on October 25, 2006 by TodaysAddiction

Do you ever wonder WHY we have problems?
Richard Bach (Illusions, The Adventures of a reluctant Messiah) wrote: “There is never a problem without a gift for you in it’s hands. We seek problems because we need their gifts.”

Have you ever met someone who needed a word to help them through a rough time?  You happen to have the right words because you have been through a similar situation.  Do you ever wonder if the “gift” from your problem, was in part to have the needed word for someone else to use at a future date?

If our problems leave us with gifts, are some of those gifts left with us specifically to be passed on to another person at a future date?

But it was a helluva a fight… (metaphorically speaking)
A HUGE Thank-You to my daughters and my wife-in-law for their added support, you ROCK!

Tonight was the public hearing for parking, and the city opted that revenue gained from parking tickets was more valuable than a healthy downtown (InMyHumbleOpinion), but by God, they made their decision knowing that there is a very large group of people who went the distance in their committment to having a vital downtown. There was a token promise to come to a solution for longer term parkers at some future unknown date (that may never happen).

Even though my city is sToOpId (IMHO), I remain steadfastly committed to the improvement of my community dispite politicians who will most certainly burn in hell for twisting, distorting and molesting the truth until there is but a shread of fact left in any public statement they make.

In February our lovely downtown, with an average parking turnover of 1.4 hours per parking space with only a 70-80% of parking spaces being used at any given time, will impose a blanket 2 hour parking limit downtown, with no (NO) options (except a few parking structures that are home to many of the finest crack addicts in town) for those who want to spend time shopping, having lunch and spending money. Of course some people will stay longer and that will generate new revenue for the city (not downtown specifically)… what a boon! Perhaps they will invest the extra dollars into making a huge, lighted sign for downtown that reads: “Downtown… come for a minute, then get the hell out!”

Of course *this* is my official and public take on the situation. If you want to know what I ~really~ think, just let me know!

*sigh*

I’m taking a little blue pill and going to bed…
