Monday Musings

Monday Musings

The sun rose this morning
A baby was born
A wedding was celebrated with joy
A 100th birthday was observed
A championship game won
A heart was broken
A job was lost
A home burned to the ground
A parent breathed their last breath
Tears and laughter mingled
and blood stained a life
But it all seems sharper, brighter, sadder
Because of what happened 
Before the sun rose

Standing outside on break this morning, around 8 AM, looking at the mountains against the beautiful blue sky, and I realized that the mountaintops looked like a heartbeat on a monitor. blip - blip - blip - A Pulse. This Earth is our mother, she shelters and sustains us. We yearn for her comfort, going to mountains and seashores and canyons to relax and reconnect. Right now she hurts. I have a vision of Earth, healed ... and through Love, not hate. A kind word, a helping hand, a heartfelt hug, a smile at a time.
