Banner Haus News and Musings
I have written and tweeted about unpleasant things at work, but it occurs to me that I tend to take the unpleasantries to heart, and forget the good encounters. I get a nice amount of smiles, thank-yous, and chitchat, too, among the dreadful happenings of gropings, kicks, and insults. Elderly ranchers drop by the aisles and talk a bit about "the old days," always declaring sheepishly after a bit that they know I couldn't be interested, but indeed I am. Elderly gals seek me out and say "You have a sweet face," which is very gratifying to hear.
Lots of anger out there lately, political anger. I'm staying in my stall! Someone pass me a daisy, I ain't comin' out till some sunshine washes the anger away.
I have never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friendship.
