Uncertainty

You know. We kid ourselves every day. With certainty.

Really there is none.

It’s as simple as that.

So what to do?

Patti said it well.

Cherish your children.

I’ll tell you again.

Be present.

Watch the birds.

Relish your dinner.

Enjoy the purr when your cat snuggles.

Cheer for your team.

Drop the petty shit.

Live today.

Sweetness

For a very special young man who held our hearts with his sweet smile.

Morning has broken,
like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken,
like the first bird
Praise for the singing,
praise for the morning
Praise for the springing
fresh from the word

Sweet the rain’s new fall,
sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall,
on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness
of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness
where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight,
mine is the morning
Born of the one light,
Eden saw play
Praise with elation,
praise every morning
God’s recreation
of the new day

Morning has broken,
like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken,
like the first bird
Praise for the singing,
praise for the morning
Praise for the springing
fresh from the word
