My blog has miserably missed my attendance, so without further ado, here is my most recent work.
Life is an adventure,and it is what you make of it. Those phrases seem cliche, and oft devoid of meaning , unless by sheer happenstance , it becomes more than just a theoretical musing . In this writer’s case ,the happenstance and its meaning defy probability ,and even logic known to most. On a clear and windy day in November, I was coming back from my local grocery store, when en-route to my home, I greeted an elderly man.
He opened his mouth ,and responded kindly,yet guarded would be his words toward me . He thought that I was “one of those “kinds of women. Those who for some unknown reason ,gravitated toward him ,to entice , or otherwise disrupt his solitary existence. His voice, when I heard it though, was of a deep bass toned cowboy.. (Think of Johnny Cash ,for a second. Just his voice.) His manner was of a gentleman, as we walked to the place he would casually recline and light a cigar. I sat with him and chatted for quite some time.(The important thing to remember here ,is that normally I would get a familiar “uneasy” flutter , or a racing current of energy ,prompting me to get up to leave. Not this time.)
He spoke of his past experiences, some with fondness , others ,it would be clear to me ,that those were deep wounds. He spoke about how he became the ” Wolf Man “.I listened intently , as he held me rapt as his only audience for a time. His ability to engage one by his story-telling, is amazing.
It would become the start of a wonderful relationship that would mature to (as it is now.. as a father to his daughter. The Adventure is on going….the writing ,fresh and new, with the styling of the “Wolf Man” and the “Pixie”.(It should be self-evident that it is I who bear the name ,”Pixie”.)
He is not a harsh critic.
He listens as I recall events relevant to my history and mindset. We have found a kindred interest , in each other, to be the type of humanity that can love people as they are, help to edify one another,and show the love of God as He taught us to.
