Me, The Gnat

Posted by lehewitt on June 21, 2016 at 10:55 AM

I am guilty.  You are guilty.  We all are guilty of self importance syndrome.  It is just natural to feel that our lives, our work, our actions are a big deal.  I have been examining this subject a bit.  We tend to view our lives as more important than say, a fly or a gnat or a moth.  We also tend to view our lives as more important that say, an elephant.  Yet, we tend to think of the life of the elephant as more important than that same fl...

Memorial Day Done Right

Posted by lehewitt on June 1, 2016 at 12:45 AM

Yesterday was Memorial Day.  It was a beautiful, early Summer day.  I slept in late.  I lounged around a bit.  Then we had a get together at 5:00.  We had the grill up and running and filled with potatoes and corn, hot dogs and kielbasa, pork chops, burgers and chicken.  Elizabeth made the cheese dip, the one with hamburger and cream cheese in it.  We also had Italian pasta salad, ice cream sundaes, a vegetable and fruit tray, and a couple ...

Goodbye Mom

Posted by lehewitt on January 29, 2016 at 2:55 PM

It's Friday, January 29th.  I have been hibernating today.  It has been a challenging week.  My mother passed away at the age of ninety early last Sunday morning.  Next came the unending flurry of messages, phone calls, travel, arrangements, decisions, meetings, events, people, and more.   A loved one dies and the family is suddenly cast into the hosting role for visitation by hundreds of people.  Certainly, it was good to see the faces and feel...

Trouble

Posted by lehewitt on December 5, 2015 at 12:30 AM

I always seem to get myself into trouble!  I will admit that life is more fun that way, but still, I think I may annoy some people along the way.  Which people?  Well, those who live inside the proverbial box.  The ones who follow the herd and do not see this whole miracle we are living as an adventure.   You must conform!  Well, I am not very good at conformity.  I rather like being me!  I listened to someone droning on today about th...

It's Here!

Posted by lehewitt on September 9, 2015 at 3:25 PM

It's here! It's here!  It is September 9th and it's here! After several days in the nineties to appease those silly summer lovers, the first hint fall has arrived!  It's in the sixties and seventies for highs and forties and fifties for lows for the forseeable future!  All I can say is AHHHHHH!   I LOVE this time of year!  So comfortable for a hot natured beast like me!  I can be outside without being all sweaty and stinky.  Also, it's a me...

Looney

Posted by lehewitt on September 8, 2015 at 9:25 PM

Sometimes I just wish life had a pause button so that I could get off the ride and just catch my breath for a bit, figure out which direction I am heading, get my thoughts in order.  My trouble is that when I try to slow down and gain compass, I always find something else that needs doing and I get started on yet another tangent.  Also, people just do some strange shit.  We all have our own issues and baggage that we drag along as we get older, but some people...

Dreamboat

Posted by lehewitt on August 28, 2015 at 3:20 PM

A pill that I have taken for a few years lists a possible side effect of vivid dreams.  I love that side effect.  My dream world is so much fun!  In my dreams, I live in a very specific house.  I can describe every room for you, especially the kitchen. I love the fact that I can eat whatever I want in my dreams.  I also love that my dad is still alive there.  We spend many good times together.  I can also levitate and fly at will.  I h...

Conversations

Posted by lehewitt on August 5, 2015 at 7:10 PM

Last night I had a reconnecting conversation with an old friend.  It felt good.  It wasn't long or drawn out, just a catching up session.  We lose people like this through the years and that's a shame.  We all head out in different directions and lead our own lives.  It is good to re-establish the things that made us friends to begin with.  


Today, I had a conversation with someone who wanted to kno...

My Village

Posted by lehewitt on August 3, 2015 at 8:55 PM

I love to reminisce.  I have so many great memories from fifty-plus years of wandering aimlessly around this big sphere of dirt and rocks.  I was fortunate to grow up in an ideal little village in Pennsylvania, surrounded by good, God fearing people who looked out for one another.  I can still mentally travel house by house through that little place and tell you evryone who lived there in roughly 1970.  I knew them all and they knew me.  All 250 of t...

Questions

Posted by lehewitt on July 29, 2015 at 4:20 PM

I am full of unanswered questions.  There are so many things I wish I understood about my life.  For instance, why does the cat always throw up on my shoes?  Why does the mailman always come late if I am waiting on him?  Why do the days go by so much faster now than when I was a kid?
