Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - October 10, 2020 - "Join Me?" (#12/12) - More than ever, the ability to cope is an invaluable skill to have. I don't mean ranting on Facebook or building a shack in the mountains to isolate yourself in - I mean that internal dialogue. What's it saying to you? Mine is desperately trying to divert me from my current trajectory towards crotchety, old, get off my lawn guy.
"Join Me?" represents my coping mechanism which takes into account that besides all the earthly roles I have, I'm also a card carrying member or 'being' of this beautiful, enigmatic universe. When I revisit annoyances through the lens of the 'being' that I am, I notice how these seemingly, all-encompassing hassles diminish in importance. As weird as it sounds, imagining myself on an asteroid helps me do this. It doesn't mean I don't deal with problems - they just don't ruin my day like they did before.
