on this day honoring mlk, and every day
“this is the unusual thing about nonviolence –
nobody is defeated, everybody shares in the victory.”

my doormat without a sunday paper on it.
my very kind paper man
told me to just text him if i was ever missing a paper
he would drive over to deliver it
i love the sunday paper and especially the crossword
love throwing open my door on a sunday morning
the paper patiently waiting for me on my door mat
love opening it
with a fresh cup of steaming coffee
and diving in
the day came
when it wasn’t there
i sent a gentle text to my paper man
saying there was no sunday paper waiting for me today
he very quickly responded to say –
that is because today is saturday.
ah, i thought.
en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Sunday
Sunday is the day of the week between Saturday and Monday.
Sunday is a day of rest in most Western countries, and a part of the weekend.
“time flows in strange ways on sundays.”
my wall plug looks quite content
and has a story to tell.
“it seemed to me at an early age that all human communication-
whether it’s tv, movies, books –
begins with somebody wanting to tell a story.
that need to tell, to plug into a universal socket,
is probably one of our grandest desires. and the need to hear stories,
to live lives other than our own for even the briefest moment,
is the key to the magic that was born in our bones.”
-robert r. mccammon
olive and rose
really have it made
a modern kitty headquarters
custom-designed and gifted from grandies
a special stash of catnip
gifted from those who cared for rose
no jobs, appointments, chores, errands, meetings, or responsibilities at all
a gift from mother nature.
“listen, don’t forget this.
don’t let this slip your mind.
most of us, if we’re lucky,
we see a few seconds of the high life.
and the rest are the residue years.”
