Over the weekend we watched “City Slickers,” a movie from 1991 starring Billy Crystal as a city dweller named Mitch who goes with some friends on a cattle drive. I think it’s really just an average movie, but it’s kind of fun and it was COLD out, so we watched it for the umpteenth time.
In a pivotal scene the crusty trail boss Curly (Jack Palance) tells Mitch that “one thing” is the meaning of life. Mitch has to figure out for himself what that one thing is. It’s different for everyone. So that got me to thinking about what my one thing would be.
Words in blogs, in poems, on the pages of books (mine or someone else’s), in e-mails or letters, grants I write, news releases and speeches. Words spoken, written and sung. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Words are my calling.
Q4U – What’s your one thing?
