An infant’s cry cracks the dawn of a day in all eternity
And who’s to say what will unfold and what shall be his destiny
By mid-morning all the lessons learned, freedom is at hand
And play ensues till afternoon when he becomes a man
Then work and duty call on him to strive for his success
But by the eve, he realizes more want for happiness
The fire of the afternoon has burned to smoldering coals
And he’s warmed by his memories as he faces being old
But it’s in the early evening when twilight fills the gap
Between the burning heat of day and slumber’s cozy wrap
It’s here where peace and contentment wait
Like the twinkling evening star
Barely visible unless you concentrate upon the very far.
Before the night overtakes it, it has a solemn place
To witness, as it stands alone
The utter state of grace
The food court.
When it comes to eating, does it get any better than this?
I mean, obviously it’s not the most gourmet or luxurious environment, but where else can you – and everyone else – get such selection? You can order up whatever you want – sushi or stir-fry, pizza or subs, tacos or burgers, deli or salads, even smoothies and fro-yo. The worst part is deciding. Once you do, you may have to wait in line and then maybe do a little scouting for a table, but where else can you get exactly what you crave with so little effort?
It’s a lot like life.
We are surrounded by amazing abundance. Everything that anyone could possibly want is within reach. It doesn’t always look like what we think it should… (You don’t always need linen napkins) …but as far as variety goes, it’s out there, like the most amazing buffet. What a blessing that the hardest part is choosing – what career, who to partner with, when (or if) to have children, where to live, how to spend our time. Of course, once we choose, we may need to be patient or put out some effort to make it happen, but the choices are ours to make, and the options are limitless.
(Me? I’ll have a little of this and a little of that, but I don’t worry about missing anything. I’ll be back.)
