had to catch an early morning flight
out of the little village of new york city
super shuttle came to the rescue
arriving right on time at 3:20am
picking up 6 other people along the way –
2 young women speaking korean
1 southern man speaking with a heavy twang
1 set of parents who giggled and hummed along with the radio
and their two year old boy
who yelled out ‘woah, man!’
every few mintues for no apparent reason
making everyone laugh over and over
couldn’t have had a better crew to send me off on my way
what a lift.
“i love those connections that make this big old world feel like a little village.”

what a lovely little place
discovered on a walk in the woods
nestled beneath the old trees
resting on a blanket
of the softest pine needles
open to all who happen by
who lives here?
“when you’re wide open, the world is a good place.”

how lovely it would be
to walk across this little bridge each day
leave the busy world behind
to enter once again
the quiet calm called home.
“praise the bridge that carried you over.”
