Today has been a day of one simple thing after another. And yet, in it, I've read an amazing short story by Colum McCaan, had a major insight when a friend texted me and said that the story might include "triggers" and read an article in an older New Yorker about how the right, politically speaking, is on the forefront of prison reform which absolutely blew my mind. Who knew?
Things are going on here in my world. Some are serious and some are not quite-so and I am trying to keep my little nose above water and take each wave as it comes.
I am picking vegetables, dealing with chicken poop, baking "fried" green tomatoes, getting rid of stuff, cleaning stuff, and enjoying have a dishwasher, and mostly talking to Lis everyday which is more of a joy than I can relate.
I am trying to concentrate not only on what is directly before me but on things happening in the world. I am trying to hold my own world together and put one foot in front of the other.
One simple thing after another.
We simply cannot try to grasp on to that which we do not have all of the information to grasp. We must be patient. We must wait.
In the meanwhile, there is love and there are fried green tomatoes and roasted corn.
Read that story if you get a chance and if you do, tell me what YOU think it's about. No. I'm not your Eng Lit teacher. I am just curious.
Much love...Ms. Moon
