“Our power is in our ability to decide.” – R. Buckminster Fuller
Since long ago college days, I have found primary life guidance from the existentalist perspective. The existentialists believed, as do I, that we are responsible for our actions and always have a choice. I know there are Buddhists and cognitive scientists who might differ with seeming clarity of the I in this case and, even, with the notion of free will it implies. Who knows? They may be right. Until they convince me, (a circular notion if you think about it) I will continue to act as if I am acting.
Kate and I had our business meeting at the IHOP nearby. Gourmet breakfasts for seniors. Omlettes and pancakes. Yum. After concluding that we’ve done well of late, except for that excess in Hawai’i, we drove to Wells Fargo Bank where I got a medallion seal on a letter to Vanguard adding Kate to my account and putting the assets of the account in our living trust. We set up the trust last October and I’m glad we’ve both lived long enough to finish moving our assets into it.
Ever since Monday I’ve been on a tear, getting this and that done. Got a loan. Got the beneficiary stuff completed. Filed tax stuff. Cleaned out my in-box. Sent an e-mail to Headwaters Parish about my upcoming preaching assignment there on April 13th. Set up the hydroponics and am into the third chapter of the large Permaculture Design book by Bill Molison.
All this deck clearing provides, eventually, room for new work. Perhaps a novel, certainly outdoor work later this month, more reading in Taoism and art history. Whatever.
