Stories

<Oct. 12/14> The stories we tell define us

Outline us

Confine us

 

The wise people are always saying so.

 

How I wish our stories

Had always been about

 

Joy

Generosity

Abundance

 

Waging peace

Not war.

Not control, anger, dominance, theft, violence

& hoarding.

 

Stories of resilience

Generosity

Compassion

Possibility

Gratitude

 

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

Music!

 

Never too late for those!

p.s. & celebration, inspiration, solidarity, acts of kindness & caring

& no doubt other great things too!
