Since my blackout from Facebook, life has felt more full and tangible.
Everything that makes me happy can, for the most part, be touched.
Instead of trying to fabricate relationships with invisible threads of the world wide web,
I have been fabricating relationships with the wide wide world.
I became aware of these little wonders taking place everyday,
Other circumstances of life have since seemed mildly important.
I have felt so rich and fortunate
chasing this bounty behind every branch and bend…
I sigh, because I wish I could live in this bubble forever;
everything of value (to me) actually being attainable…
What blessings I could be thankful for.
But unfortunately, there is rent to pay.
School loans to borrow.
And (until recently) a car that necessitates upkeep… but now is likely totalled/gone for good.
Or is there?
If only I could trade these wild mushrooms, berries, and some of Earth’s sweetest water
for a mechanic…
or an education…
better yet, just security.
But amidst all this wealth, I have yet to find money growing on trees.
Who wants to pay for cars anyway?
Perhaps I should follow-up with Santa about that old pony… or was it a bike?
ever truly your favorite prairie muffin,

P.S. My family needs some prayers. 🙂
