Getting to the end of June with the Fourth looming in less than a week. Lot’s of tourists visiting the Island and lot’s of pilgrims coming in from all directions to walk Phil’s Camino. The corn is growing and yes I will try and get a pic for you. Things are busy.
I had a two day plumbing adventure and Wiley helped out with that yesterday and we got it all buttoned up yesterday afternoon thankfully. At one point I called in a local expert for a consultation on the problem. Half the folks on this Island are colorful characters and he is with the program with that. As part of the technical talk he told me to remain positive and to count my blessings. Well OK, we can do that!
Remaining positive and counting our blessings are familiar topics right here at Caminoheads and the stuff we deal with a lot but what can we learn something extra from a plumber or better yet plumber/philosopher? What he was saying with “count my blessings” was that my problem was not the worst that it could be and I had options that are not always available to others. I had room to maneuver.
And he said when trouble shooting the problem I should remain positive about the potential outcome. A best case scenario could be right around the corner. Don’t get bogged down by all the “what if’s” or possible possibilities. Just work through things one at a time and check them off the list as you come to them. Sounds like a plumbing camino to me.
OK, and I have good news to report that we followed his advice and a best case scenario did appear in a very timely manner. We are lucky or blessed or all three. So, onward to the next project here at the ranch. Live and learn as they say.
Sunny loves, Felipe.
