Today does not feel like a day
To write about flowers.
It feels frivolous.
But nature has a way of pulling me in
Of teaching me about life.
As I looked out my second floor
Office window this afternoon
The thought occurred to me
Why can’t people be more like a garden?
To accept our differences.
To celebrate them .
To co-exist in peace.
To be a garden
Living together in extravagant grace.
My heart is with Orlando.

This was so beautiful! Yes to extravagant grace! Thank you.,
This is a terrible tragedy affecting hundreds of families. I would feel better moving forward if I thought we were going to do something to keep it from occurring again, but I don’t see that happening any time soon with all the gun lobbies and the lack of national databases being tied together. Waste of human life and unnecessary grief for so many.
