Oh goodness! This little story, Leave-Taking, has all the pathos I can handle at this moment. Calling to those one loves as their back, or the tail lights of their car disappear around a corner brings those parting times right to the fore. I so wanted the story to end with the man taking the bird back home…. Be prepared to have your heart-strings played with just a little.
And it is a time for heart-strings to be played during this period of the year. I hope the tone and pitch and tunefulness is pleasing to your being. And the same for all those, family and friends and acquaintances, you come into contact with. I’ll be spending some time in the monastery up to the turning of the year. A visit I always look forward to and the tune is always good.
Thanks to Julius for the link. Well timed.
