I woke up this morning.
In my tiny beige cabin tucked away in a canyon on a creek.
I made a mug of bitter espresso.
Organic. Package-free. With a drizzle of homemade oat milk.
I opened my backdoor.
And walked through the tall, still-dormant grasses, down to the water.
There were no bodies of fallen loved ones to step over on my path.
No grieving of a life forever changed.
When I got hungry,
I had tempeh
Made from local chickpeas.
Again, organic and package-free.
With cabbage and onion from the local farmers’ market.
When I got thirsty,
I turned on the faucet and filled a secondhand glass with clean water.
When I had enough sun and wind for the day,
I retreated to my cozy cabin in the canyon.
This world is one of impermanence.
With one single command, a life of comfort can be turned to rubble and ash.
We will one day wonder if it was ever really there.
So, practice gratitude.
Remember to be of service.
Be a part of the creation of a world you would like to live in.
