Lumineers ringing out of the tiny speakers…
blueberries scatter the floor from a curious pup
and coffee… oh sweet bitter goodness.
Today is a our nation’s birthday.
Rome, Athens… they are easy to think of their history, their birthdays! You know the greater world revolved around them at point in time.
Here, A-mur-ica though- I don’t get the same goosebumps… why so?
Reading recently of a Cherokee diplomat reminds me that we too have goose-bump giving history.
The western mountains of Carolina will hold more secrets in her smokey air than any of us will ever know.
We have scars, a once peaceful people thrown about westward on a not-so-subtle title, ” The trail of tears”
Where are you today?
Are you reflecting on freedom and grace?
Are you working, as we both know the world doesn’t stop for holidays…
May we be still today. For just one second.
Think of the sacrifices that allowed us to live in a world where work- radio- scattered blueberries are possible. Thank you soldiers. Thank you.
