Thursday Thoughts: Making a Universal Memory

Yeah…there are days I wonder about things like this…

There’s only one reason I can think of, Silver, that an infinitely powerful, all-knowing, fun-loving, eternal gladiator of the Universe would ever choose to be born into a little human body, with stub-able toes, adrift in time, immersed in space, cloaked in mystery:

There’d have to be much more to what was going on than mere mortal eyes could behold, and it would have to be really, really, really, really, really beautiful.

And it so is.

You’ll “see,”
The Universe

Love it all, Silver, before it’s just a really, really, really, really, really beautiful memory.

Those days are the ones when I truly wonder if the struggle is worth it. And then something happens. A Carolina wren lands on the window sill and trills at me, head cocked, it’s knowing gaze checking me out. A sunrise paints the eastern sky with strokes of vibrant watercolors. A star winks in a midnight sky, thumbing its nose at the full moon. There’s the Green Giant’s laughter, phone calls from The Only, the purr of Editor Cat and the snores of the Office Dogs. There’s watching TV and Lawyer Guy and I spouting the same thing at something we just saw on the screen and yelling, “JINX!” as we laugh. And you know what? There’s a whole lot to love about my life. That includes all the friends, readers, and fans I’ve met one way or another. S’all good, I think. And I have a lifetime of beautiful memories to look back on.

What about y’all? What memory sticks in your mind?

  1. I love Carolina wrens. But my favorite right now is the red-breasted nuthatch. So cute. So tiny. So fearless. They’re like a cross between a regular nuthatch and a chickadee.

    Yep, lots to love about life. Hubs sitting behind me right now, doing his work. The eastern sky getting brighter as I type this. Kira, having eaten her breakfast, sleeping in the bedroom. The birds in the trees and the deer in the woods. Living in a place where I can write what I like, publish what I want, and express myself freely without worrying whether someone’s going to cart me off to the gulag. Little things. ;o)

      But it’s the little things that count! I’ll add a hot mug of coffee in my hand as I watch the light change out my office window (which faces north so I get the light change but not the sunrise.) 🙂

Got something to say?
