Looking Down

When flying I always assign myself a seat to ensure I get a window seat. I like looking out the window down at the different landscapes. Passing over towns and trying to get an idea of where I am and what the town is like is what I do. This was on the way to Arizona.

Last night I returned from a four-day vacation to Tennessee. My stops were Nashville and Memphis. There’s a stark contrast between the two. One thing is common in both and that’s heat. It was really hot and humid. I like both of those things and I like both of those places.

There are things in life a man holds dear to his heart. Things that are such a part of his life they make up who he is. A man will lay down his life and sacrifice so much to preserve them. Freedom is one of those things and family is another. There are other things but I imagine these two are so important that for most they rule.

The loss of freedom, ┬ádeath of a family member and divorce are three things that have a profound impact on the spirit of a man. I compare those last two closely because the pain you feel from losing them are not unlike. I’ve never experienced the first. ┬áMy heart is heavy always as I think about the loss of my family.
