flitting from this
seemingly with ease.
giving it all
for others to please.
Minding my own business
as I try to survive
in a cold world that hardly notices me
until I try to say hello-
Whew. Another close call.
Kindred spirits, all are we
if we open eyes and hearts to see,
this circle of life, a magical ring
where we share this moment-
no small thing!

As so often happens when I am viewing life through the camera lens, nature shows up, longing to be recognized. This fly kept landing on my husband’s hand until I snapped its picture. Then it left. There truly are no ‘small things’.
I have recently had a very heartbreaking friendship loss and tried to understand its purpose. The best I can do is hope that the things I did for good are not forgotten and whatever ‘sin’ I committed is someday revealed to me and forgiven. But I must forgive myself for somehow failing this person and remember my own heart knows no enemies. I just found this quote by the Buddha today and love it.
Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.
