Tea and Empathy

tigerswallowtail

After taking inventory of my life over the past 24 hours, this is what I have in stock:

* last night, a glass of wine and fireflies sparkling amongst the hydrangea

* this morning, a cup of tea and the punctual arrival of the friendly tiger swallowtail floating and weaving through the backyard

* a near head-on collision with two preoccupied goldfinches

* a surprise fly by of a great blue heron

* the single and spectacular sighting of a hummingbird

There are also the items that pertain to the consumption of my future; lack of employment, my health, sustainability, economical-refill sized uncertainty.

I’ve placed them at the back of the shelving so they are hard to reach.

The splendour of nature leads to brand loyalty and improved customer satisfaction.

  1. Good to know you have your priorities straight, my friend. I love the way taking stock of your whole life principally involves observations of the preceding twenty-four hours. I think this is a more beautiful practice than the playful tone of your writing may suggest, for in our presence with these things we remain profoundly real…

    Blessings-

  2. Not a bad inventory my friend!! 🙂 I particularly like the idea of putting some of the things to the back of the shelf 😉 The photo is so beautiful. ..I have drawn a butterfly or two…this one is calling me! ♡

    1. I wholeheartedly agree, I have felt this too – there is logic and meaning on how and why we found each other and I treasure it immensely. Sending love and attentive goldfinches your way 🙂
