Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

An Even Dozen

I'm not exactly a guy who makes new friends easily
Tom Petty

Well, Tom, apparently, it is not all that  hard
Even I, it seems, can do it.
And that makes me happy

As Will Rogers said:

"I never met a stranger"

Today, I had went to a fundraiser in my town
One of those rooftop-over-looking- the ocean affairs

I knew three people when I walked on to that roof

I new an even dozen more before I left

Old people....

Young people....

They all had stories that I wanted to hear

Lives I wanted to know about

And they wanted to know 

Like tiny stitches in a tapestry- people drawn together
making life's picture whole

By the time I left that event
I was more than I was when I arrived
By an even dozen.
and that's poetiquejustis
Whoever loves a pure heart and gracious speech will have the king as a friend. 
Proverbs 2:11
