Sometimes in life you just wish people would do better. However, the version of better that you wish they would do is inevitably your version of better. This will usually not work because you are not them. So I say to myself, " Isn't it just obvious that such and such is not being carried out properly?" I once again have to admit that the statement is also not exactly true. This is a lead in to my story.
Once again on the train I observed an action that gave me pause. I was sitting on a relatively empty train. I watched people as I always do. The information that is available on one train ride is just so plentiful that it rocks my soul. There was a man sitting to my immediate right across from me. The doors opened at the next stop and he released a bottle around the door from a seated position that landed under the train and smashed into bits and pieces. He literally let it fall in between the area between the platform and the train.
I get bursts of inspiration daily. They may come from what others say or even just watching something that stimulates me and drives me from the inside out. Just the other day a fellow musician told me something that gave me pause in the most positive way. He told me that there was something within me that was bigger than I could see.

I am writing this post today because I was told that a certain person felt that our connection was or is in the process of being compromised. At first I was taken aback, but then I just listened and gave them my full attention. I felt that if they were bringing it to the forefront as something that was bothering them, it was my duty to recognize it and do what it takes to rectify it. The only confusing side of the situation was that I did not feel the same way. However, I knew that this was a teachable moment that I had to engage in, so I did just that.
