Dreaming of Spring

Dreaming of Spring-by Kerry Hartjen

Mother Earth has a mind and rhythm of her own. She is powerful. No matter what we humans do to her, she still dominates. We are but specks on the back of an elephant. It is hard for us to wrap our heads around such tragedies as we see how powerless humans can be. My heart goes out to the families in Japan as they try to cope with the unthinkable. At the same time, minute by minute tragedies happen all around us, the bus that overturned, the young mother who miscarriages, the daughter who watches her father slip away to Alzheimers, the young soldiers lost in war. All this is also part of the narrative and rhythm of life. One person’s loss is no more important than another and each is heart wrenching.

And, then there’s my latest sale of two pairs of shoes on eBay, just concluded 30 minutes ago to a repeat customer from Japan. Life does go on.
