WE DONATED A CHAIR TO THE LAKE.
There were visions of saving it. One leapt after it. The other too far but on the way. No matter. First instinct was right. Accept risk and get on with it. The cost we pay the consequence of untethered adventure. Nothing ventured nothing gained. The courage to accept risk being the reward. Noted. Next time we agree to arrive incrementally more prepared.
WITHIN SITE OF THE HOSPITAL.
There a man lays. Arm cradling his head. Hand stretched out pointing the other way. Positioned almost intentional. Maybe premeditated. He could be simply taking a rest. Those driving by doing their best to assess while still navigating a road. Possibly someone at the far light walking towards. Cars coming. All evaluate out of the corner of one eye. And then the moments passes. He gets up and simply walks the other way. I suppose he no longer needs our help, immediately. It felt almost like a test. Who moved towards, and who moved away.
A KIND SOUL
It is said she was a kind soul.
One hopes we all are.
Her gift being the grace of empty space.
Those who knew her will grief in their own way.
Grateful to have known her.
Kim may you Rest In Peace.
