A Dedication To: F.D. Shannon, He was a Gentle Man ! Olympus E-510, Plus Photoshop CS3, Digital Tablet & Me ! Albuquerque, New Mexico USA, Dedication Verbiage being prepared, The Unity of Mind and Spirit, a Member of the Osage Nation ! As with every one else, a dream is but a dream without action, we can know someone for an entire lifetime, than still realize that we do not know that person at all, F.D was my Father in law, other than his Daughter we had common interest, but the pull of life was in different directions ! along about the time I was making final preparations for retirement, My Father in law asked me if I had time to spend with him, to teach him how to use the computer, Sure! and that started a Friendship, we would spend time on the computer, than in addition do chores around his new home, common things that become more difficult to do as age , makes it’s influence, I heard words to the like, where did you learn to do this or that ? That opened up my craving as in all of a lifetime, I dealt with other peoples needs, thrived to be of assistance, and joyed to see people discover themselves, From my own Father had learned that if a person learns to enjoy and do what others did not, they not only would be forever busy, but gain the prospects of always be employed ! but of course there is much more color to the story ! the Father in law shared with me that he had been diagnosed with a Cancer, I was of course feeling privileged that he would share such a revelation, with such an impact ! near the ending of his presence, he offered many opportunities to and with me, as result I learned of course a part of life that I may possible learn when my time came near ! We all realize the time is coming ! don’t we, but the point comes through, we haven’t lived , in dreams but reality ! and we haven’t smiled enough, the value of giving holds a whole new view rather than receive, he purchased for me Photoshop ! we learned together, who we had become. and what sharing is all about with patience ! when I gave this creation to him, he said no words, but the Smile was personal and precious ! Giving of ones self, not need be expensive, the reward of course, one doesn’t have to wait a lifetime to find themselves ! Thanks ! My Friend, the opportunity Visualized and Enjoyed !
