Stan Lee, the master of the comic verse, passed the other day. Lee, responsible for the creation of so many superheroes, Iron Man, Spider-Man, the X-Men, The Fantastic Four, and The Black Panther was a genius. No doubt he probably would have gotten a good laugh at the recent Geek Tyrant post of his memorable characters super personas reimagined as cats. R.I.P. Stan Lee.
I paid a visit to my daughter who now lives in Philadelphia. For those who read this blog on a regular basis, you know that Koko and Jean Claude have moved on. Crazy Cat Lady (CCL) is now fostering two cats, Sonny and Cher. Apparently, the cats reflect the reported later stage of their namesakes’ relationship in that the cats are in conflict at times.

Today, the Sunday after Thanksgiving is supposed to be the busiest travel day of the year in the U.S. People are leaving their Thanksgiving celebration destinations after time spent with family, friends and significant others. We are traveling by car, airplane, bus, train, RV and by foot and by bicycle. Despite, traffic jams, canceled flights, standing-room-only trains, one thing is certain, we are, most of us, sure of our destinations. We will get where we are going at least in the physical sense. Home. For some, however, the journey never ends, There are folks who never arrive mentally and spiritually anywhere. They are constantly in motion. They are always going, doing, emailing, using Social Media, directing, worrying, moving, gossipping. Stopping or even slowing down is not part of their inner journey. Peace for them is a foreign destination. Their road to inner harmony is roadblocked or delayed by their need for constant excitement. Often, they offer you a ride or a free ticket to join them in their insanity. Don’t get on that plane! Don’t join folks on the journey to nowhere. Wherever you travel, you can choose peace as your destination.
