Episode Summary

Time, can we get more of it? How about a redo? Raincheck anyone?

All viable questions. Even though the nursery rhyme Solomon Grundy is metaphorical, illogical and perhaps nonsensical in nature, I have to admit there is something to be learned from it. Until we can crack the time code, if it’s crackable, we remain bound by the finite concentrates that encapsulate time. This is where Solomon Grundy continues to speak to us.

Solomon’s brief life teaches us some valuable points as to how to posture ourselves with this priceless finite commodity we call time. 

Enjoy pondering for a time:)

As you can tell, I'm kinda saying it from my memory. Kind of remember him. Anyway, all jokes aside, even though it's metaphorical illogical and perhaps nonsensical in nature, I have to admit there is something to be learned from the life and times of Solomon Grundy.

[:

Uhhhh, that was not the Solomon I grew up with. Back in the day, Solomon Grundy was used to teach the days of the week. And so that's, that's kind of how I learned him.

Until we can crack the time code, if it's crackable, we remain bound by the finite concentrates that encapsulate time. This is where Solomon Grundy continues to speak to us. His life was encapsulated in just the span of a week. The fact that time comes around for a moment. Then it's gone for eternity. Solomon's brief life teaches us some valuable points as to how to posture ourselves with this priceless finite commodity we call time.

Or, you might actually have started, but now you find that you're like a deer in headlights because there's just too much around you, such that you're paralyzed in indecision. Take a deep breath.

Solomon Grundy did not wait for Wednesday to come before he started living. There is a place of waiting, but it's not to be confused with a place of stagnation that brings ruination by the determination to wait beyond waiting sake.

hings, you just have to take [:[:

Solomon Grundy's life was not smooth sailing. This is not some sunny, rosy, nursery rhyme that focuses on blue skies, pretty flowers and lollipops. No. The reality is that life is fragile. In fact, in our previous episode, we talked about Aftershocks! Turning Crisis Points into Victory. Finding the strength to take life one step at a time.
