(When gravely ill...)
The story is about a story of a story that hasn't happened yet. It is also a story about 'CONNECTING THE DOTS'. as well as a story about EYES and VISION.
That story is about ME. And as it is a story about ME that hasn't happened yet, and as it is about connecting the dots, then the story is about YOU as well. But YOU WHO? Whoooooo are you....who, who...who,who
I mean I reaaly wanna know.
YOU WHO? Let me tell the story of yesterday. Yep the day after the yesterday before!
My friend Red who featured in my book invited me to a 'free lunch' for small business. Now no Hobo in his right mind would knock back an invitation for a freebie. Red picked me up. All good. Red was representing her MOT Club which was sponsored by the Business Association. The MOT Club members would be selling raffle tickets for their organisation.
When we arrived it was like walking straight into my own Memory Bank. All I could see were......SUITS. Aaarrgghh......business SUITS! Aaarrgghh.... I used to be one of them for 30 years. Horror. Fear. I started to shake. I had completely forgotten I WAS one of them years ago. Going to the same functions at least once a month. Aaarrgghh.....
But then I came to my senses and realised where and more particularly WHO I was. I was no longer Brendan Lauritz, Bank Manager, Corporate Marketing Manager, Financial Planner and the rest. No. I was Trigger. Down but not out celebrity Hobo, part time beach bum. And I had dressed UP for the occasion. No tee shirt or bare feet. Nup. I was resplendent in Harry Hawaian shirt, shorts (covered in my chocolate cravings from the night before) and well worn thongs (you know, sorta rubber sandals without a back, sorta cheapish side). Well I still believe it helped raffle ticket sales. I think even Red felt sorry for me.
Anyway after the usual beautiful lunch (why do they always give a tiny little serving but make it look nice?) and the 'Giants Of Business That Have Collapsed' guest speaker, I was delivered back to the 'office' (Library) where I proceeded to fall asleep after my two or three glasses of vino. I was blogged out and proceeded on my quick walk home when the funniest thing happened.........
So suit and Harry Hawaii discussed everything possible since we worked together. But another funniest thingie.....
Suit, as it turns out, has been a bloggee from the very beginning. Not only because he knew me all those thousand plus days ago, but because he wants to do what I am doing....but is too scared to! Can you believe that! Insane. Suit watches every day of my journey so that I can muster up the strength to do it himself. Well I'll be a plucked duck! Never would I have imagined. So......
After this mind blowing blast from the past, I ventured home to La Chateau Tento, put my feet DOWN (that's the way my block slopes) had a nice cuppa cold tea.....and had the biggest smirk on my face since smirks were invented. Imagine that, somebody up there likes me.
So if you are doing it tough, suffering loss or some other grief, or even if you are just not quite as happy as you KNOW you can be, then......
