So we talked another hour after the movie ” Cliffhanger’ a needless re-run, but it provoked Maji to ask, ” What keeps humans warm when everything out there is cold frost” ( see movie, a perfect ‘signs of the times’ movie ha:)
To which Noe answered, “The heart.”
Maji,”What keeps the heart going?”
Noe,” Life.” ( Maji rolls eyes and starts to ask ‘ what is life..’ but gives up).
Which got me thinking out loud about how the earth is just a wee planet going on and on in space with nothing to support her and how gravity is limited to us, and how day and night does not matter in calendars outside the sun, but here we are going on and on about human issues, fashions, passions, all temporary pursuits, but out there, I mean get on a space bus, and there’s a whole University out there that has other agenda, and one lil rock from some place has to hit Earth‘s forehead to get us into non – gravity agenda – that is the essence of Life… .. ?
Maji kind of liked that. This morning the sky grinned down at me and asked a few questions, which was my heart thumping new pulse into fingers that I never knew I had. It feels good somehow to know how temporary, how permanent, how transient, how eternal we are ; it feels good to know the heart listens to an order it bows to,
why do I like that …
