wonderful day today, topped off by a fun dinner at the remote kitchen with LB.
As I mentioned earlier, it started off with a lot of anxiety. Spent most of the day just wandering about in the beast, simply to get out of the trailer. After that, I stayed upstairs playing the Taylor DN3, then took a long nap. Be glad when these guys are finished.
But I must admit, it looks great. The colors SU picked out blend well together. Now comes the hard part, new furniture, pictures, etc. Her job, not mine.
Late afternoon, we went to CH’s for the renewing of the vows thing. Met their family and a couple of friends. LB also made it and we decided to head out to the remote.
Had a great time. T is nice and easy to get along with, I can see why LB likes her. Just a fun evening. Oh well, just wanted to note that for some reason. Going to have our weekly recap at 8 in the morning before church, it’s good that we are following through on that.
It was a really strange week for me on Lone Star Times. I’m not quite sure how, but I managed to turn a lot of people against me. It’s funny sometimes in life, everyone is okay with beating around the bush on some things. But when you bring them into focus, it really upsets folks. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad.
There were some comments made that made me think, think really hard. People are scared and I am at a place in life that I just plain don’t understand it and it shows in my reactions to certain things. I’ve noticed a racial undercurrent to the illegal issue that I cannot ignore but that upsets an awful lot of people.
I wonder if I’m mistaking racism for fear. What puzzles me is why people are afraid. That is what I don’t understand. How can an American citizen be afraid of people that come from garbage dumps to bust their tails for what is considered meager wages? I recall reading how the Nazis came into power and the arguments that I hear parallel those. I don’t understand why people buy into those arguments; they are completely foreign to me. Anyways, I need to keep meditating on that.
