Jane Chaulklin-Schott always has something wonderful to say and I think it is pretty exciting that she is writing a book!

Original content by Jane Chaulklin-Schott

Hi Everyone on this beautiful Tuesday in TIME.  I have missed you and
you certainly have been on my mind.  I completed my move here in the
 Metro
Orlando, Florida area.  And the move went so nicely.  I did ask for prayers
and have a feeling your prayers were heard as my move went through very
smoothly.  In fact, it went so well that I easily slid into making great progress
on the non-fiction book I am writing.  Thank you so much.  In my work,
I was sent this 1934 poem by Peter Dale Wimbrow,  The Man in the Glass.
It seriously caught my attention and today I thought I would share it in
an ActiveRain post.  Perhaps you are familiar with it.  I was not and will
incorporate it in the Epilogue of my book.  Hey everyone, hope you are
having a terrific day.                                                                               ~  Jane

   THE  MAN  IN  THE  GLASS

WHEN YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT IN YOUR STRUGGLE FOR SELF,
AND THE WORLD MAKES YOU KING FOR A DAY,
THEN GO TO THE MIRROR AND LOOK AT YOURSELF,
AND SEE WHAT THAT MAN  HAS TO SAY.
FOR IT ISN’T A MAN’S FATHER, MOTHER OR WIFE,
WHOSE JUDGMENT UPON HIM MUST PASS,
THE FELLOW WHOSE VERDICT COUNTS MOST IN LIFE,
IS THE MAN STARING BACK FROM THE GLASS.
HE’S THE FELLOW TO PLEASE, NEVER MIND ALL THE REST,
FOR HE’S WITH YOU CLEAR TO  THE END,
AND YOU’VE PASSED YOUR MOST DANGEROUS, DIFFICULT TEST,
IF THE MAN IN THE GLASS IS YOUR FRIEND.
YOU CAN FOOL THE WHOLE WORLD DOWN THE PATHWAY OF YEARS,
AND GET PATS ON THE BACK AS YOU PASS,
BUT THE FINAL REWARD WILL BE HEARTACHE AND TEARS,
IF YOU’VE CHEATED THE MAN IN THE GLASS.

Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr.    1934

To my dear and beautiful friend, Brian England.  Thank you so very much for re-blogging this post.  The Wimbrow poem has a lot of meaning and depth for me and just knew you would pick that up in reading it.  Have a wonderful Friday, Brian.  Wish we lived much closer, like a mile or two from each other.  I just know I would be on the sidelines for those tennis matches.  And perhaps if you did not mind, go hiking one day with you. I would love to see
the desert flowers....
