A Small Needful Fact

Is that Eric Garner worked
for some time for the Parks and Rec.
Horticultural Department, which means,
perhaps, that with his very large hands,
perhaps, in all likelihood,
he put gently into the earth
some plants which most likely,
some of them, in all likelihood,
continue to grow, continue
to do what such plants do, like house
and feed small and necessary creatures,
like being pleasant to touch and smell,
like converting sunlight
into food, like making it easier
for us to breathe.

“Very often, you know, you stop walking because you say, ‘Well, I’m tired of climbing this hill. I’m never going to get to the top.’ And you’re only two steps from the top.”

-Morgan Freeman

A couple of weeks ago, some friends and I collaborated on a birthday card for Morgan Freeman.  While watching his show, The Story of God with Morgan Freeman, I learned his birthday is on June 1st.  I began following him on social media, and yesterday he posted something on Instagram:

You are never too old to have a revelation.

This gives me hope. Grateful for another soul teacher today.
