“You’re Grounded!”

As I wrote in an earlier post, I was planning to fly to Florida for a family weekend but might have to cancel if a little gas bubble in my eye didn’t completely dissolve before my flight. Well, the bubble has spoken. Although it’s pretty small, its voice was loud and clear: “You’re Grounded!”

You're grounded

I’m disappointed but am doing OK. Our local kid and grandkids are feeding me and watching out for me. It’s been nice.

Yesterday I listened to a terrific interview — a conversation, really — with Krista Tippett, host of the radio program and podcast On Being. The interview was on the Longform Podcast, one of my favorites. Really interesting conversations.

For me, a highlight of the conversation with Krista was a distinction made between “hope” and “being hopeful”. With all that’s going on in our society and around the world, I’ve taken heart in “being hopeful”… being hopeful about people and our abilities to come together and solve the problems we face.

If we look and move together, we can see light at the end of the tunnel.

Jim
