When I walk the sidewalks of my every day life,
I can feel the grit seep in and fill the cracks in my heart.
It would be easier to walk in a garden, a forest, along a ridge with a view….
but I know I need that ever present silt if I’m to make any pearls over time.
Day late but not a dollar short, pennies in my pocket from a day full of simple joys.
Finished up a present for my new grand nephew on his way, lunched with my mom, met my son’s new girlfriend who came to keep him company in the hospital, knitted in the evening with Netflix.
