It has taken a tragedy close to home, but not for my heart
to shatter my sense of safety
to make me realize: this life is fragile.
To make me take a step back, out of everyday life.
So yesterday I left the world outside,
– school corrections small-minded drama/ people demands my phone-
to soak in the hot tub with a glass of wine,
to bathe in thankfulness for this life of mine,
to look closely at my own home and heart,
and truly appreciate all life gives me
and to really see the people in it, that stay with me.
And to breathe.
And to just feel.
