In this Journal, I will attempt to strip away my protective veneer to view and communicate honestly what the truth is as I perceive it. My intent is to grow, for without an honest evaluation of the truth, how else can one fully absorb life's more difficult lessons and benefit by them. If I do this in secret, then I am still hiding behind a protective veneer, so it is being published online. If you find this Journal, you are welcome to read it and hopefully grow from it as well.

School Day Morning Greetings, 3/21/22

Each school day mornings from about 7:35 am to about 8:35 am I go out to the edge of the street and greet the many people who are taking their children to school, whether to the school a block from here or a nearby middle school or high school. I also greet the commuters, the pedestrians and others. 

But this early morning was extraordinary and if I may, would like to share it with you:

I greet people from the north side of the street, westbound traffic is directly in front of me. A gentleman in his car on the south side of the street, eastbound, slowly crossed over to block the traffic to fist bump me! I was startled, and as protective of him as I could be.

A woman in her car gave me a small bouquet of white flowers and thanked me for my love.

A 50 - plus year old man from Mexico City, 25-years in the U.S., three-years in Palos Verdes walked up and said he had never seen anything like this before. We spoke English and Spanish and he spoke of what a wonderful life changing event this is.

This is in addition to all the waves, fist bumps and words of good cheer that are standard practice.

With Love To All - Dick
