The problem with rock throwing has to do with velocity. The speed of a thrown rock is slow enough you can see it's approximate destination before it arrives and still have time to change your mind and wish the rock hadn't been thrown. The problem is, you can't unthrow a rock. All that is left to do is to holler "Duck!", or turn and point disgustingly at someone standing near you, preferably not one of your few friends.

With the warmth of happiness all around, I pause, turn and look over my shoulder for what still may lurk. Laughter turns into a quiet smile as I ponder what might be ahead. Then I return to the moment, the warmth and the happiness because this is what I have now, for it should not be wasted because of what may wait in the uncertainty of tomorrow.

I'm kind of excited, Amber said if I do good in my music lesson class this afternoon, she is going to buy me another pair of gym shoes. She's going to buy the kind that has all the lights on them that flash when you walk just in case I wonder out in the street when she's not watching. They should go well with my reflective vest she bought me the other day.

A rainbow of flowers are blooming. The winds are carrying the changes of Spring. Our minds freshen, our clothes brighten, and friends and families come together in celebration. All that is good rushes to the front pushing that which is not aside. Strength is gained, closeness confirmed, and a new energy for future challenges is born.

Amber and I were sitting out by The Lake talking and enjoying each other's company. I told her that I admired and appreciated her hard work, her strength of character and the fact that she always says what is on her mind. She thanked me and said she had always appreciated the way I handled myself, never letting anyone make a fool out of me. She said, "You've always been a 'do it yourself' kind of guy."........Hmmmmmm?
