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!
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.
