fair is fair


so reading the two marks in the morning.
i shared ol’ marcus aurelius yesterday.
well, fair is fair.
it’s mark nepo’s turn today.

it feels perfect for today.
when i wonder what could possibly be
appropriate to share on the anniversary of 9/11.

‘Oh to realize that light will move through
anything transparent. To stay transparent
so the gift can move among the living.
To know this is our job.’

i am printing this out and putting it here
at my desk. I find this a really tough job.
so reminders help.
and on days like this, i understand how
important a job it is.
