Rainy Days & Mondays

Both rainy and Monday here, plus Dr. King's birthday holiday. All good things.

"Property is intended to serve life, and no matter how much we surround it with rights and respect, it has no personal being. It is part of the earth man walks on. It is not man" (MLK). So many ways to think about that statement. For myself, it's about letting go of burdensome attachments to things (and holding dear my attachments to those people I love).

A buck and half got me a coffee at Starbucks, a dry and caffeinated study day with my CDL (commercial driver's license) book, and a parade of friends coming in from the rain. The benefits of a small town.

It's not hard to imagine that for Dr. King, the question may have been, "What are your 'right to assemble' regulations at city hall compared to the rights of those who are assembled here?"

Tomorrow, I take my tests for my permit.
