“What do you see?”

He was in an eyeglass store, trying on new glasses.

“I see you, but not very clearly.”

“Good,” the clerk said, smiling, handing him another pair. “Try these on.”

He did.

“What do you see now?”

“I see you, but you are fuzzy.”

The clerk handed him another pair of glasses.

“And now?”

“And now you are tinted.”

Yet another pair of glasses were handed over.

“And now?”

“There you are! I can see clearly now!”

“Good,” said the clerk. “We have discovered that when you have the right pair of glasses to see through, the world is clear and in focus.”

“Like life?”

“Yes,” giggled the clerk. “Glasses are filters, just like the perceptions of your mind.”

“You are very wise, for an eyeglass store clerk.”

“Oh, thank you, but I had to see through the right glasses, too.”

“I’m glad I found the right pair to look through.”

“They were waiting for you all along.”

Ao Akua,


PS – You know what this means.

    All I can say is ‘Wow’ – the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I just finished reading my copy of your father’s latest book and I am awed by his thoughts in chapter four – it should be mandatory reading for every man and woman over the age of 15. I’ve never encountered that much wisdom on one subject in one place before.

      Jimbo, thanks for attending his 91st birthday party. He loved the card. He kept saying “How do you throw away a card like that?!” He loved the personal nature of it, as well as the lotto tickets. (He won $5). Thank you and Bonnie. May I use your comments about his new book to help promote it? See him receive the book here https://youtu.be/9KJP5ZQF0bA
