Autumnal Reflections

Autumnal Reflections

autumn, reflections


trees glow with color

a season of transition

hope and love abound


autumn, reflections


We are on the verge of great change in our country right now. Besides the obvious change in the US elections, many of my friends are undergoing transitions large and small. I’m following the trend, having found a new job last month. I start this week and bought a newer car suitable for driving around all day. I’ll be installing and servicing caption phone systems for people with hearing loss. I’m excited to have a job that allows me to be in service and earn a decent living doing something that I feel good about. I’m grateful to let go of my survival job and attitude. I pray that President Biden can harness the feelings of hope pervading much of the country to make good on his intentions to heal and unite our country. We certainly need to heal the many rifts around race, politics, social justice, gender, environment, and more. I remain cautiously hopeful for our country. I believe Joe Biden to be a man of good character and intentions. I also believe our political system is broken and in need of major changes starting with things like repealing Citizen’s United, term limits, canceling lifetime salaries and benefits to politicians, removing corporate control, and returning power to the people.

Meanwhile, I’m excited about my new job, new car, new President, and the feeling of hope. May we be gracious and compassionate with our neighbors who have different beliefs, politics, race, religion, and background.

Happy Autumn!Β

  4. I’m so happy for your new changes – new job and newer car. Is the phone system for cell phone? What a great purpose of your services. I’m also hopeful for our country. The pressing matter at hand is to develop the vaccine for the virus, facing it objectively rather than denying it. This monster won’t fade away by itself.
    I love the fall colors. Thank you for sharing and enjoy your new job, Brad.
