Listening to the homily yesterday at mass
I was struck again by how complex
we make life.
I recall times too many to name,
when I was angst filled and worn
until i discovered surrender in spirit
buoyed by trust in God
and action of my own -
sort of like swimming.

We live in an interdependent world.
but there are those with agendas,
and those with spite,
and those who just don't know.
but if we heed the words of the psalm,
trust in prayer,
do unto others,
and be open to serendipity,
there is always a way.

There are no coincidences.
