Six Word Fridays ~ Enough


When the whole wide world feels
chaotic and completely un-lovely, I ask
the ancients. I seek understanding from
great thinkers of long, long ago.
It's not just their words....though
timeless wisdom moves me. No, it
comorts me to know that the
ebbs and flows of the human
condition have been challenging mankind for
ever and always. Perhaps all is
not darker now than ever. Perhaps.
In our humanity we struggle, we
fail. We hurt. We heal. And
help others to heal. Again and
over again. This week it was
the words of Isaac Newton that
spoke to me: We build too
many walls and not enough bridges.
An insight and a solution in
nine simple words. I don't know
about you, but I want to
build more bridges. Je suis Charlie.



My Memory Art six word fridays
Please join in the Friday fun!
Caption a photo, share a poem
or tell a story. Just remember,
only six words in each line!
{and joining James for Weekend Reflections}

  4. I am overwhelmed by the atrocities we commit with and to one another. Did you happen to see any coverage of the streets of Paris filled with people standing up for the people, free speech, basic human decency? I saw a clip where some one had turned his giant speakers in his window and played Imagine by John Lennon toward the crowd. Every one started singing out loud and swaying to the music. Perhaps all is not lost after all.
