Sunny Days and the Health of Friends
It's one of those days.
Brilliant, cascading - a blue sky gleaming above like no other. No, it's not meant to be trite. It's true and the sky I see today will not be the one of tomorrow, nor is it the same as those in the past. It's unique because I've changed again.
Yesterday my hubby and I drove north to see our friend Derrick speak at WWU. We were both anxious to see him; after all, a distance of 4 years can change people, especially when people are battling an illness as serious as Derrick's. To our delight we found him as potent in words as ever and far healthier. He's precious to so many - to see him healthy was a joy indeed!
It was refreshing to find focus once more in my personal politics as well; to be near folks whose values are along similar lines. Daily life sometimes cuases me to lose sight of what's truly important - the health of friends, the health of the planet, the power of life and love.
Perhaps those words need to be capitalized.
And so it's one of those days. A day of beginning again, rememberance, focus, and self sacrifice.
