<Oct. 12/14> The stories we tell define us
The wise people are always saying so.
How I wish our stories
Had always been about
Not control, anger, dominance, theft, violence
Stories of resilience
How different things would be!
There’s so much it’s too late for now
No way to re-write our sad, sad history.
Still & all
It’s not too late for
Love & sharing
Resilience & joy
Truth, beauty & gratitude
Never too late for those!
p.s. & celebration, inspiration, solidarity, acts of kindness & caring
& no doubt other great things too!
