The Times They Are a-Changin’

Be, Change, Become ... practice it takesTwenty nine years ago today, I became a father  of a wonderful daughter.

Thirty nine years ago today, I was finishing up my second day at U.S. Air Force Basic Training.

Fast forward, my son is now four years old, the same age I was when Bob Dylan released  The Times They Are a-Changin’. Times are still changin’.

In twenty six days, we will have a new president.

And I find that next year, my work life may be a bit different than expected.

All these turning points, and so many others, offer opportunities and challenges.

Changes.  “All conditioned phenomena are impermanent” (Dhammapada Verse 277)

I am prompted to this reflection by changes imposed on this site via a hosting company failure.

I have finally gotten this site going again on a new server. It was tedious, but offered the chance to do some tidy-up chores.

As high emotions often lead to regrettable posts, being offline may have been a blessing. I have been posting on another site, but so far, it has generated little feedback. And, this other site gave me a chance to practice equanimity (I need practice).

I look forward the the possibilities of next year!  I am seeking serendipity.
