This is long overdue. I have wanted to share these images together for a long time. I was sure I had something really profound to say. But I still don’t have words. That damn Glennon Melton at Momestary always seems to say what I’m thinking first! I have been writing and deleting since late last night. It just came to me that I don’t have the words because maybe there aren’t any left. From where I stand, everything that has needed to be said, has been said. Minds are made up. And for the record, I believe love will prevail. So today you get this series of images along with my lofty and self indulgent wish for the day.
Today I want the world to err on the side of love. Always love. At the end of the day, we are all human. We all want love, companionship, community, comfort and peace. At the end of the day we aren’t so different. It’s a tricky thing, our differences. Our differences make the world beautiful and colorful and fascinating. But when our differences turn us away from loving one another, I think it’s a good time to take a deep breath and remember that we are all the same too. We are all subject to the human condition. So my wish is that you love your neighbor today. Love unconditionally. If asking you to love a stranger unconditionally is too much, then simply wish that stranger love. Wish and pray and hope that the same love you want to feel, the love you want your children to feel befalls the neighbor you never knew. Lofty (and sappy), I tell ya!
