I took a walk this afternoon on the street outside my house. It’s a dead end street so I can walk on it and not have to worry about traffic. There were two other people walking on the street. One was my neighbor Carol. The other person I didn’t know. We were each walking by ourselves. It was nice to be alone with others.
I thought how we were like the birds that often fly through the sky around here. Hawks, and turkey vultures, and falcons. They fly solo too. But they also share the sky.
I thought about the vastness of life. It’s bigger than I can imagine. Yet we all live within in, moving around, doing what we do. We share the space.
