Judy nuzzles close to my hip

Her warmth and love comfort every being

Of me

Every time I watch PBS I cry

Tonight it is about nature As it often is And it tells the story of our country And our Forefathers

Our forests Our sequoias Our buffalo

Just a hundred years ago it was different

And it makes me sad.

I feel the pain of it all and I can’t stop the pain

Theodore Roosevelt said, Leave it as it is. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it.

He said it at the top of the Grand Canyon Off the cuff To the people On his 14,000 mile trip to see our Country He was the President

Sometimes when I think about Heaven…yes, I think about Heaven

I imagine a place where you see all that you wanted to see – do all that wanted to do – say all that you wanted to say – meet every person you ever wanted to meet

And all you feel is – Happiness.

For now, I feel the pain and I cry tears for the injustice of lost wildlife For the trees that have fallen For the testing of nuclear weapons For the wars we are in For the crime in my neighborhood For the loneliness For the misunderstandings and miscommunication For the silliness of living life in the 21st

……..

Judy has shifted She no longer nuzzles my hip Jake is putting clean sheets on the bed and I have wiped my tears

Another day starts now.
