So today started with this


I then realized it was for a reason. So, of course, the follow up song in my mind was:

I leave it to you to extract the meaning of that. I did, and it kinda hurt.

    The “job”? IF we call it just a job? That is just to earn $$.
    We have to discover “OUR Calling’….what is it…that no matter how much $ we do or don’t make; and sometimes, it will be great $$.
    The JOB? The job is something we love to do….regardless of the $$….it is fulfilling. It is meaningful.

    I don’t know what you did in the past to make $. I don’t even know if this, in someway makes you $. The point is….you do have a calling…this is so important to all of us.
    You make a GRAND impact on those who come here.

    Thank you for that. I was looking for what it is I find “my calling”, and nothing was available here. As for what I did prior to the looking for what I ended up with, that I rather enjoyed, but it still wasn’t quite right. The most rewarding thing I have ever done was my military job as a weapons instructor and sniper. It felt like I was doing what I was meant to do. Then I retired. I know a man who teaches concealed carry classes, but he’s a retired CMSgt. For him, it’s a little pittance what he makes at that. The thought of opening an actual school like Gunsite would be great, but the man who did that was a retired Col. On and on. The market is unstable, the guaranteed clientele already pretty much accounted for in the schools that exist. And I turn 60 Thursday. I’m not a pessimist, nor an optimist. I am a pragmatist, and see the number of “it isn’t going to work” factors. Had I had the thoughts I have today 20 years ago, I might have made it fly. Ah well, my son is studying medicine in college.

    I do understand,and I find it sometimes very frustrating. What you do now is extremely important. You are addressing “psychological warfare”. You are making a very important and strong impact!

    Again, thank you for that.

    He plays the piano like a rushing stream of life.
