The Human Touch - A Repost and Update!
Now Playing: The Greatest of these is Love- The Apostle Paul
Topic: Life Lessons
I had been having a rough morning...so I pulled off from the shop to grab a cup of coffee...as I was leaving I saw an old friend...a client I worked around when I worked with mentally challenged adults...I stopped and looked at her and as she looked up at me (not knowing if she would or could remember me) I asked...Do You remember me? She smiled a near toothless smile and said softly Tiiiiim! Then she sprang up and gave me a warm hug but back straightening...I was glad to see her and she was well cared for....I was and am blessed. That work was not a career but a calling!
I had not seen her for I guess maybe 6 or seven years, and as I rode the escalator down to the bottom floor back to work, I felt my eyes welling up with gratitude to God to have made a difference in her life, and she in mine! I looked for my old blog posting of years ago, and here is the story of the previous time I saw her, and my insights....

This was an old blog posting of an encounter I had just before retiring from social work to pursue my art!

Now Playing: I am truly thankful!
Topic: Just Life!
Well, I'm back to work tomorrow God Willing, and this has been an interesting weekend which I thought I was gliding into it and it started off with a nice bombshell..:))
The rest of this weekend has really been spent recouping and soul searching...with the normal what the heck is going on and what am I here for? stuff...
Yet tonight as I checked in on Buster and carried his bed to the porch, he gave me that puppy dog look w/ tail wagging and I remembered how before my back surgery three years ago, I did not walk him much at all for a year prior to that....He got his exercise in the yard....
Temporary paralysis was setting in for me, at times alarming to say the least. I could not put in only a block or two walking at most and sometimes have to sit down until the numbness subsided. I was getting pretty despondent, and had to just about threaten my DR. (kidding) who finally ordered tests and referrals that backed up my claims...
Now it's about three miles a day combined and growing....
I thought about the times Buster drove me nuts, with me being in pain and could not run him down when he ran around the yard not wanting to come in...(there are stories to tell :))) yet surgery wise I am thankful. Even though I was not always the most level acting person during those times...now I am glad to have made it through...and thankful to God for His Mercy and healing.
I am thankful for the friends that stuck with me through this, and thankful for Buster for he truly is a wonderdog! :))) Good Night All...Good Night Moon! :D

Now Playing: A photo/music slideshow By Me!
Topic: Aloha From Maui!
I did this a few Years ago and updated this with some loose instrumental work I did a bit later! This guitar work as I remember it was played very impromtu, as I had restrung and tuned up a 12 string. I had not played a 12 in quite few years...10 or more! Anyway a 12 is a different dog than a 6 string so this BG Music is warts and all! Enjoy and God Bless!

Street Light Epiphanies (Personal Poetry)
Now Playing: By Timothy Jon Terry
Topic: Personal Poetry
Street Light Epiphanies (Personal Poetry)
I remember the late night drives to the studio,
passing darkened stores all closed
past the homeless and their bottle, warming on the streets
hostess bars, lots jammed with cars in long rows,
the hookers leaning against the outside walls
waiting for their patrons to show,
though I never went in that direction
I often wondered about it...but will never know,
though I cast no stones as to their vocation,
in their darkness there is a lacking of the light,
and the need fulfilled is shallow...unreal,
whatever the want is for the creatures of the night,
there I would be passing seeing the lonely patrons
leaning talking, seeking to meet their need
a false feeling, a false kindness, a pretended love
that feeds their need to be,
I am a man such as they are,
and have that same need I would think,
I chose not their path but tried to understand,
for it is a love that's truly not real nor free,
for as a picture of itself is not of substance,
though it's subject is one of beauty that we see,
the picture is but only a represention, a glimpse,
a mere molecule of who it purports to be,
though it is a shot in the dark,
Vegas would give no odds,
that one might find there , some reality,
a possible right for the wrongs,
the sell is so strong,
it blinds the eyes to see,
I know some would go
just for companions,
and in their mind's eye,
look away from the dollars paid,
she is a willing ear, and a tender touch, a kind word,
all of that, a relief from the stresses of the day,
yet there I would drive
by the lampost lit side streets
it foddering the reason for my paints
knowing more.....yes, seeing
the understanding of my own loneliness,
bit still waiting on love that is real and free........

Mail Bag Days
Now Playing: When life is just buzzing along....
Topic: Just Life!
Somedays take off like you are a railway mailbag...you are hooked into it and you hang on for the ride! T.J.Terry
This morning I slept later than usual, thus missing my morning walk with Buster...I was a bit hurried and made into work at opening (Usually I'm Early)
I had this vision of the old Railway Mail Bags, and how they were set un a turnstile and hooked by the train as it went by. It was an old system of post that has been replaced with many other numerous ways of delivery..Not sure if it is still done in rural areas...
Yet today I felt like that bag, just hooked and hanging...going along for the ride...flapping in the wind!
And as was this morning I had a start-off snafu and figured it was all smooth the rest of the day..and it was pretty much so...
Times have changed, and though the technology levels are amazing and we can accomplish more..we take on more and rise to What Dr. Peter called the Peter Principle...Meaning one rises to their own level of incompetence...
On these mailbag days I think it is easy to feel You do not have a thumb on the pulse of things...It is a test of faith!
Yet as You press through in faith and not by sight You usually come out on the positive side of things...though somedays the ride is a little bit longer than You want to last...
I see people going through these things everyday. Businesses downsized workforces and peple overloaded with duties..and in a lot of cases most will be understanding to their plight because they are going through the same thing also!
I have a great boss who has the same wild sense of humor I have and that helps greatly...also on breaks I read a fellow writer's blogs of Her humor lightened me up also!
So really no point to my meanderings other than that we be open minded to other's plights....and knowing that they like us are probably having a cruddy day also!
So on those days "Mailbag Days" Prayer helps and doing Your best to hold fast to what You need to do, trying to be a little light hearted, and having done Your best to let God care for the rest....
Blessings In Him, Brother Tim
