It's the plumber I've come to fix the sink

Hello I have a leak in the bathroom sink...I discovered it when I pulled out a towel and it was already wet...a sure clue something is wrong. The apt people will be here soon. Yeah When out kids were little there was a 1 minute short the same title as above. You can find it on YouTube if you want to see it. It still makes me laugh. What if we were daily determined to be as clear about who we are and what we are to do each day. It's me....I've come this day to fix the sink.... Or really whatever it is that we are skilled to do. It's me. I've come to bring you joy...or peace or hope..or love... What if we started the day, every day, taking on an attribute of generosity and gave it away... Try it ..let me know how it goes for you and leave me a comment... God abide Bobbie Giltz McGarey @2012

A.M. Robin

Hello friends,
     Well just so you know A.M. Robin is not the author of a book...that is the Robin who begins singing EVERY morning between 3:45-3:55am.  churpdlddelchurp.
     I started keeping track of it by writing it down on a paper by my bed.  Ok, can you tell I once was a biologist, well still am apparently.   The robin sings about 20 minutes...and stops...
     I can sleep through phones ringing, alarm clocks, the former tenant upstairs who I thought had a pony,  but I wake for the Robin's song.  
     Yes I can and do fall back to sleep for a few more hours.  I've decided I will just smile when it sings.
This morning I remembered a Peter,Paul,and Mary song...If I had wings...
       If I had wings no one would ask me could I fly
       The bird sings no one asks why 
      I can see in myself, wings as I feel them
      If you see something else keep your thoughts to yourself,
      I'll fly free then...  

I think the robin sings to remind me every day... choose joy

God Abide
