the words to this song are so beautiful... by meeting you I have been changed for the better...


just because I'm glad we are still close despite the distance... I cried at this but happy tears of gratitude!
Love LeeAnna

Sunday's fiction comes from Sunday's Whirligig:

"Proximity" by Karen Head: possum, window, outside, foraging, almonds, watch, nibble, inclined, share, change, opening, world

                                              a small opening

Margo looked out the window, at the great outdoors. She spied some movement outside

who was out there? Go away!   Oh! 

just a possum, rooting around in the grass, foraging for food like people do at now empty grocery stores. Next to it, a squirrel doing the same thing, and a bunny sitting as flat as possible on the rocks trying not to be noticed by the big poodle also watching from the sliding back door.

we're all trying to survive, only the humans can't see the danger as it's so small yet so grand in scale. The world is afraid of what they can't see to avoid.

the squirrel was nibbling on almonds in the suet now. Probably a mama squirrel, who inclined her head at the dog behind the glass. I must eat to provide food for my babies in the nest, she seemed to convey silently to us, watching from a distance. 

I'm glad I could share sustenance with her, Margo thought, even in these times when we don't know about tomorrow.

Life is short, eat the good chocolate first! He who dies with the most toilet paper wins! ......All lives matter! 

Life has changed... and in some ways it hasn't. Doesn't it say in the Bible what we do for the least of these lives we do for God?

 All lives matter. We all want to survive, and beyond that we want to matter while here. What does matter is how we treat each other while here.

  3. LeeAnna, in response to your comment on my blog...Milo is going through what we call the "terrible twos" and it doesn't just hit when they are 2 years old lol...we figure it happens every 2 months to 2 years or so, and sometimes it happens to two of the pets together where they just don't take us seriously enough to obey lol! :) Sneaky critters...

  5. Beautiful post, my friend! The video brought back wonderful memories of hearing Kristin Chenoweth in person in Baltimore many years ago. Then, too, she brought up someone from the audience to join her in this duet, which was so moving, not only for the song's message but for the connection she made so quickly with her singing partner.
