strive.

Standard

morning yoga at the farmers’ market.

what I passed as I drove by

on my way to get bagels.

it’s all about balance.

some days it’s yoga and organic veggies

in the morning light.

other days it’s drinking a latte

and eating a chocolate chip bagel

with whipped cream cheese

while wearing the yoga pants you woke up in.

bagels.

imagine my surprise

when i went into a tim horton’s

to

order a dozen bagels

of a random variety

and

after the counter person put them into a bag for me

a random worker

from the drive-through section

stormed up

yelling out

“my customer wants a plain bagel and that’s the last one!”

and proceeded to try to reach into my bag to retrieve it.

all i could say was

“hey, those are the bagels that i just bought!”

and

she stopped

with her hand in mid-air

and

looked around

at all of us

standing in front of the counter

and

went back to the drive-through

without another word

and

without another plain bagel

and

i wondered if that had really just happened.

yes, yes it had.


“i’ve said this before, and i say it again.

bagels can be an enormous power for good or for evil.

it is up to us to decide how we will use them.”
