And Now

So unthinkingly I squashed the spider In the hallway As though she were an interloper. Usually, I grab with a tissue And then release it, saying out loud, “Go with life little one!” It was a momentary lapse Of consciousness. And now I have lost my venerability. #respect#Buddhism#

Easy

How easy it is To become ensconced in grief. So many layers of emotions, How liberating it would be to let it all go. Not there yet.. But going forward With introspection And Gratitude. #grief#

Indifferent deference

Consider this new vegetable. Kalettes. Insouciance Overcome By the lure Of culinary challenges. So the green diva Smiles sweet and waves me forward. Grow. Harvest. Consume. #gardening#challenge#reward#
