    If i could validate only one of the omitted aspects of this post its the relevance factor. Younger generations tend tend to enjoy the very physical aspects of existence. Things that our senses state are real. My mother was one who new long before i did that existence had a fundamental aspect. I will label it critical thinking. She didn't fix things she strategically placed thoughts like seeds that grew. A few days later she would have that weird smile when i expressed how i fixed something. The seed was harvested. It wasn't until many years later her and i had a discussion about this process she used on me. She gave me the greatest advice when she said that i am now the planter of seeds within my own children.

    All to often today we get involved with right and wrong at the physical level. One of you will turn out to be right, maybe. But planting the seeds of critical thinking in the face of the right and wrong discussion is a tough character quality to acquire. I have watched my daughters fail many times because i new seeds had been planted and the harvest could not come before the failure happened. My mother was an awesome leader and she used those skills as a loving parent.

    Thanks for this post and the recognition of our elderly who have developed such wisdom. The question you have answered for yourself is that it is your responsibility to seek it. This is awesome. My wife and i have decided that regardless of whether our children seek it, we will always be relevant by not challenging the right and wrong, but adding to the critical thinking of the days events.

    We all will be elderly one day. Are you relevant to your children's critical thinking?

    What a great topic @Kevin Baker. I've always enjoyed not just learning from my elders but spending time with them. They sure do have wisdom to offer if we only listen that can greatly benefit us. I've always had a variety of friends, including those who are much older than me. When I first moved to the town we've lived in for the past 25 years it was a bit lonely. An elderly neighbor came out during a snow storm when I was out with my kids, to introduce herself. We became such good friends I looked up to her and loved her like a blood relative. She died almost 15 years ago and I still hear her voice and guidance she offered. I will always miss her. It does scare me to know that not everyone respects elders and can even be indignant with them. We are all going to grow old and I can only hope I'm treated with the same respect I get now. Just because a persons outwardly features change doesn't mean they aren't wiser than us or feel just as deeply. They actually feel on a much deeper level because of their life experiences. At least that is my experience with people who are older than myself.

    You can make all the same products as plastic however it is biodegradable,

    #15 Thank you @Deb 🐝 Helfrich Not that I am fixated on the topic of lines but your comment reminded me of a moment in time when my daughter and I were having a conversation about early childhood development. The discussion reminded me of a poignant experience in my life. Every once in awhile, my schedule would allow me to engage with my kids in their classrooms. On one occasion, I found myself sitting down with one of my daughters and a group of youngsters in a small classroom filled with a lot of these little future contributors. It was coloring time. One of the kids was getting frustrated and would color, stop, color, stop, look exasperated. I came over to see what the issue was and why the tears were welling up during an activity that was just supposed to be fun. I looked at this youngster, and then at the very clearly defined lines of a picture that were supposed to be colored within. In this particular case, the lines and marks of the crayons were all over the place. I just looked at the picture and this young child and said, "this is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen." In an instant, the tears subsided, a smile arrived and the coloring went on with a renewed passion and sense of purpose. And it didn't hurt that I was handed a crayon to help color my own lines. My initial inclination was to color within the lines but was told with emphasis--"Its Ok to color outside of the lines." It is all about perspective. :)

    #14 This is perhaps one of the best responses I have ever gotten, @Joel Anderson. And I have pondered a little more about leaving footprints and lines in the sand. Because it is important to take the difficult stands and draw the crucial lines.

    I think that it is not the marks themselves that matter, it is the ability to make them again and again and again when life gives us the moments that matter. And to be willing to make the marks so often - DANCE! - that we become known as people who will make the footprints and lines.

    @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I have thought a lot about your comment and have gone back to the picture multiple times since I posted this piece. As I thought about the messiness of it all, I was reminded of a quote attributed to Alan Watts "The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance." Which then led me to think about a few lines from Lee Ann Womack's "I hope you Dance" "And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance. I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance, Never settle for the path of least resistance, Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin'." You and the others like you are the ones who inspire me to just want to dance despite the fuzzy lines and messiness of it all.

    I have been mesmerized for hours over that photo, @Joel Anderson. I can't remember if you have been around when the playa paintings of Andres Amador have been shared - I simply never tire of his work: http://www.andresamadorarts.com/

    I have always celebrated that my own lines are swirling and complicated and situational - I refuse to trace from anyone else's lines. And to offer a slightly different perspective, if I am not attached to my lines, if I can be at peace with the thought that they can disappear with the wind or the tide, then I am available to shift into what is occurring rather than relying on the belief of lines that may have evaporated with a changing world.

    We are aligned in the necessity of making lines as part of fixing what is broken and moving the world forward into a more sustainable future for the planet and all its ecosystems.

    What a beautiful picture. Privacy is one of the lines I like and another is mental and emotional bandwidth. As Clint Eastwood said in a far different contest "a man's gotta know his limitations". Once I have established a firm foundation which is akin to what is said in Matthew 7:24 - "to build your house on rock and not sand" - then the world opens up to me as a change agent.

    I don't make it a raison detre to change the world, nor want to change a single thing about Joel Anderson or any other person. The transformations that incur in me, occur because of sound values, learning from my mistakes, appreciating my strengths, valuing the love that is around me, count the blessings of a wonderful life and have the humility to learn and develop.

    As each one of us become a light, we add one more unit of brightness into the world. Then I can deal with the lines that imprison us, the lines that do not make sense yet continue to persist and as I engage all these kind of lines, get back to the picture of the lines in the sand and acknowledge the wonder of it all. What a precious thing life is and even more precious when it is priceless.

    @Joel Anderson, this buzz proves that you're walking the talk; you're leaving footprints. The beautiful image you offer is non-linear reflecting, from my perspective, that our movement in time is non-linear. Seems that everything related to time occurs more in patterns like those in the sand. The word "before" has a double meaning; either of something that came from the past or is placed ahead of us. More like moving around in circles ;-)

    The symmetrical lines are captivating. Seeing the chart and the timeline certainly does give one pause to consider are current status and how it may impact our future. The quote is appropriate and would add that the definitions of honesty and truth have been blurred. I believe that your growth chart demonstrates why.

    Technology has globalized our reach and we can share experiences and find confidence on our personal truth/honesty that comes with no performance requirements. Before technology your truth was tested and formed within a community's survival, everyday.

I miss the good old days, when neighbors actually were not just cohabiting next to each other but interacting as you described in your buzz. I'm assuming your parents balanced each other out well from what you wrote! Your experience in the Military I'm sure, was life changing. Kudos to you for going to College and pursuing​ your dream!

How do we value our own uniqueness and endeavor to share it with the world in such a way as we leave each interaction & situation better off than when we arrived on the scene?

    @Sara Jacobovici I see describing oneself (real self) a most challenging task. It requires a high degree of maturity, wisdom and honesty. To present a dummy portrait is very easy. But it doesn't last long. Yours is a very commendable initiative. Encouraging people to openly and honestly register their unique fingerprints. This will help and encourage the like minded to come close, interact and engage on subjects of mutual interests.
