Train and Trail
The train ride to Ottawa was sublime. Leg room. Stretch room. Spacious washroom. Good scenery. People are quiet—passed out in sleep. No traffic jams. Potato chips—for one small bag, two dollars. Wait a minute! I knew that it was all too good to be true. The chips brought a reality check.
Mathieu picked me up at the station in Ottawa and then to the farm we went; a rental space occupied by himself and Raymond. They’ve got a serious garden growing. We utilized some of the harvest—tomato, chard, peppers. Energized we were. Palate, lips and tummy, determined it all as yummy. Other senses were entertained by the veggies’ colour, smell and texture.
Thank you, Krishna! Provider!
A solo walk on the Prescott/Russell Pathway provided the balance. You eat. You work it off. You sleep. I love the fall colours by the way.
Then it’s another day. What that new day brings is known by few, not even two. But one! You may have plans for the day to come, but variables of incidents must be made room for. So keep the day somewhat open for His plans.
Life must be a joint effort in order to make the most of it.
We should make the most of it. We are humans. We can seek its full potential. It’s easy to blow the chance. It’s happened before. We’ve gone through a series of chances. We do slip and fall, but we pick ourselves back up.
May the Source be with you!
