What Did You Say?

Happy Monday, All!

Here’s to hoping your weekends went well, as in most places that I know of, there was great weather! The Cinco de Mayo festivities were celebrated in this area with style and vigor, especially since the weather was befitting!

For the most part, everything went smoothly for me as once I left work on Friday, I went to work with the boys and their head coach in the AAU Basketball League for 17 year olds. Funny thing was that I had seen an article and viewed a few quick videos on the effects of the full moon. While there has been no constant pattern in crime or craziness, the video did mention the fact that the word “lunacy” comes from the Latin term for moon which is something like “luna”. In our practice, several people seemed to suffer a bit from outbreaks of high emotions and two boys even threatened to quit! After the coach himself had one of his moments, he apologized, his son apologized to the other kids and I and the kid who was going to quit, who is also in training for high school football and track, decided to hang around until practice was over! We still have our moments of challenges of what to say, when to say it and how to say it! In addition, the “Super Moon” was gorgeous!

Saturday was a day I just slept in and relaxed until getting up to run some errands. Later, we had another practice at 6PM and things went a little smoother. Professional sports ranging from car and horse racing, baseball, hockey and NBA Playoffs continued to keep the sports fanatics busy and guessing and cheering for their favorite team. Sunday was pretty restful after streaming a service on line and hanging out a bit at the beach again in the late afternoon.

“The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it.” – Edward R. Murrow

Today, I will be aware of communication clearly, specifically, and directly. (TOUCHSTONES May 7th)

Have a great week, think about what you say, or do, reflect on the consequences . . . and be at peace!
