Up this morning at dark thirty…walking on the beach with a friend
…not solving world issues…per se.
Witnessing the sun wake over the liquid blue grey sea.
The air is smoky from nearby fires…the earth is thirsty from lack of rain
a cactus in our front yard is tired and dying
I was to lazy to pull it out…
...and just ignored it in that way you can when life is busy
…until passing by it on the way home from the beach walk this early morning
and noticing life..tons of life…tons of babies.
‘Many of the great achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged men who kept on working’
Thank you tired and discouraged cactus
