The nick, redagain is short for the words - "Redwoods again". It stands for a goal to sleep again in a tent under the Redwood Trees in northern Ca.

Jigsaw Puzzle of Life
Whatever can go wrong ... will
So we learn how to bend over...
to pick up the small pieces ...
and fix the jigsaw puzzle of life back together.
We stand back when done to look at the finished picture.
Then we might see ...
a part of the beauty of life ...
in the picture made by the bits placed side by side.
A final picture like a stained glass window from different bits of our life.
Sometime we learn...
new ways of putting things back together ...
and see a totally whole new picture!
One we might have missed out on if it were not for that bump.
So much time is needed ...
to pick up all the bits and the pieces ...
but how sweet the final picture will be when we are done.
So look for what we might do different this time around as we rebuild.
Till the next next bump that knock things back apart ...
Till the next chance to help our neighbor ...
Till the next opportunity to think beyond ourselves.
Then we might make a picture of life from Tiffany glass.
Make it a good day.
Have a great week.
Find joy in this wonderful life.
