The Scary Guy With The Long Gray Beard

4:59 PM Edit This 6 Comments »
It takes all kinds of people to help me stay sane. One of the guys in this video - the one with the long gray beard was one of the key people that walked me through my early grief with The Dead Guy. We spent many an evening together. And I love him more than I can say. I was terrified of him when I met him. He's kind of a scary looking dude. Pair that up with the antique Indian Motorcycle he pulled up on and I pretty much crawled into the corner. Turns out, he was one of the ones that was best equipped to pull me out and make me start talking.

I'm so happy that he's finally at peace. And I'm happy to report that I spent many a Saturday up there last fall, feeding the grouchy, dirty men that cleaned up the resort. I wanted to run the power tools, but turns out, I was just there to cook. Hrmph.

Isn't it funny how sometimes the people that push us out of our comfort zones are sometimes the ones who impact us the most?

Nice but scary-looking dudes and grouchy, dirty men with power tools seem to get all the Kate-love. What about the rest of us?

We must not ever judge what our eyeballs see. Good people are everywhere, and look like people...This has been key to my dealings with people.. Have a great night!
