Morning

The sun claws its way
up the buildings,
a pink hue
shyly peeking over the up,
until at last,
morning comes again.

Purple, not flowers, construction fence

IMG-6552I passed this fence on my way to St. James Presbyterian Church to a meeting with colleague and friend Derrick McQueen. It was on St. Nicholas between the 145th Subway Station and the church. Interesting that it was purple.

Coffee mug from a friend

Always good to start the day with a cup of coffee.

Even better when the mug is made by a friend and colleague.

Thanks to Paul Huh.

See you along the Trail.

How are you tomorrow?

One of the usual employees was working the counter where I set my items.

“How are you?” he asked.

“Doing well,” I replied.

“And how are you tomorrow?” he inquired.

I paused as I pondered his question. A number of possible responses flashed through my mind.

And then I thought of Adolfo and others who had died too soon, too young, too suddenly. And I remembered that tomorrow is not promised. While planning for the future is important, this day, this time, this moment is all we have for certain.

Focusing on this moment, we can live. Truly live. Fully live. May it be so.

See you along the Trail.
