Here is a great thought for the day. Do what we can to make our world a better place for all of us. What I lack can be made up by the skills and wisdom of others in our concerted and com.passionate efforts

“Some of us have great runways already built for us.

If you have one, take off.

But if you don’t have one, realize it is your responsibility to grab a shovel

and build one for yourself and for those who will follow after you.”

Fueled

I thought I was ready to get into the swing of things after Christmas break, but I recovering from the blight of the time of the year-the flu. I feel better today, but took it pretty easy the last couple of days. I think tomorrow will be a transition day and the break ends on Wednesday.

I spent time in reflection, as best as that happen when medicated, and considered how rarely the small things in life, that make it incredible, are uplifted. I applaud human endeavours, and some of them are worthy, but forget the triumph of the unobservable. Marcie Hans provided this wonderful poem that shines a light on this dilemma.

Fueled
by a million
man-made
wings of fire-
the rocket tore a tunnel
through the sky-
and everybody cheered.
Fueled
only by a thought from God-
the seedling
urged its way
through thicknesses of black-
and as it pierced
the heavy ceiling of the soil-
and launched itself
up into outer space –
no
one
even
clapped.
–Marcie Hans
