Thalia hummed Can You Feel the Love Tonight from The Lion King.
Cal sang along, “The wooooorld for once in per… fect harmony… with all its living things.”
Nia asked, “Are inner and outer worlds separate places?”
Cal and Tal quieted. Together they watched and listened to a robin who was belting out a spring song from the upper branches of a choke cherry tree outside the dinette’s window.
Thalia shrugged. “Don’t know.”
Cal hesitated and added, “From our experience with Typist, I’m learning that when she… errr we (?)… have internal harmony… ummmmm…” The Muse of Harmony felt like her reasoning stepped in sun-warmed gum. “Well… when we feel that harmonious place within, we find all is well despite the winds and bluster outside.”
Nią snuggled under the hand-tied, rose-adorned fleece blanket that Typist’s friends crafted and gifted to Typist last night. She could almost feel the harmonious ripples of Typist’s friends gathering, tying, seeing, hearing, and giving… acts of love. “Our Typist is learning to receive. This is good.”
A word from Typist:
A quote from Mother Teresa is walking with me daily. Maybe it will spark something for you, too. In the movie Oh, God! George Burns as God said he gave us to each other so that we might flourish.
When you look at the inner workings of electrical things, you see wires. Until the current passes through them, there will be no light. That wire is you and me. The current is God. We have the power to let the current pass through us, use us, to produce the light of the world, Jesus, in us. Or we can refuse to be used and allow darkness to spread.
