|Lady Liberty IV: 1960's adding machine gear, vintage clock key, vintage watch face, the standard is from a 1949 singer sewing machine ( or 1952, don't have my notes handy) .|
I bring this up because perspective is so very important to life. There are things going on right now, or have been going on, and If I can just step back and give it some space, I will be in a better place. I will have patience for things to sort themselves out.
You always hear how "old folks" (whatever that means now-a-day) have that long view, and maybe I'm reaching a age where I can at least attempt that.
My personality tends to obsession, which doesn't encourage patience. Obsessions have urgency, they are all about the now, not the maybe later...
They say with age obsessive behaviors tend to lessen, as well has folks who have depression, etc. Behaviors don't go away, they just mellow out somewhat.
I would like mellow.. the last few weeks have been mellow. I could get use to mellow.
I think the next time I do etched bracelets, the words perspective and patience will find themselves on one. Calm, peace, peaceful spirit, stoic, warm, floating.
