ah, the little email icon...didn't know about that one. you are added to my book...add me to yours. if one of us ever stumbles across patches we must send an all alerts.
yes, i know, board should have expired...must be some 'bubble grace' that gave us a few to exchange final words.
i can't recommend the bubble enough. it was in reference to the terry schiavo case that i happened on the bubble concept. i was all in an emotional mix as her final day was winding down...death was imminent. i mentioned in to the young woman working bulk at the local natural (sometimes *grin*) food market...
she looked at me with blank recognition. i said how can you not know...it is on the news EVERYWHERE. she smiled and said oh so softly, i'm sorry, i live in a bubble.
it was such a shock...everyone was talking about terri. i thought she is either mad or wise...and i pondered it for a couple of months. after more horror stories of 'fill in the blank' i decided to 'try the bubble'. it was like coming off a drug...the news thing. at first i was at a loss...my daily internet reading of the news...having forgone tv years earlier. ha, i thought i was so well informed, reading my news online.
well, i noticed i started feeling better day by day. things did not upset me as much...sunlight seemed brighter...green greener.
i decided i wanted to run into the young woman who had since left the market...she was in a graduate program to work with special needs children.
so i did create running into her...and told her how you can never know if one comment can change a life's direction...and her comment changed mine.
again, in a quiet kind voice she said 'it's nice in the bubble isn't it'
and so it is...so it is.
i feel more love and less fear...i feel more joy and less pain...and is that not truly how i can make a difference in this world.
and it's never too late for love...
