Have a Heart

Where do I even start. That’s a rhetorical question. Monday Musings didn’t happen, but a lot else is in a certain way. I’m retired, so I don’t have to worry about going to work or not; and what a luxury that is, I know. The times are setting everything that we know as normal on their head, and we are left with the new normal. Everyone is hunkering down, and not knowing for how long.

Living in this little beach-like town in Northern California I have the luxury of going out for walks along the water to get a little exercise, enjoy the beauty, and get some fresh air. It’s a small town, and on a normal day not a lot of people are out there on the little beaches, but when I do run in to someone else we smile and keep a bit of distance between our paths now. There is a heart here on the little beach on the main street that is always maintained when disturbed by rough surf and high tides. It’s always there. As far as I know, there is no one person assigned to keeping the heart in shape, it’s just a local citizen who notices that it’s in need of a little loving repair and tends it. That’s what is needed now. Everyone looking out for a heart that might need a little care.

It’s a difficult time right now for the world with this pandemic, but if we all show a little love we can get through this, and maybe even have a world that will be better going forward because we’ve learned to be more aware of a heart in need.

    Seems every heart needs tending to, now and then.
    I hope you stay clear of the virus, and your area can get out of lockdown soon.

    Well said, Angeline. A little love can go along way, and there are ways and means without invading each other’s safety zones. How lovely to have a beach to roam on.
