Battle & Reflection

Battle & Reflection


tommy & me
reflections

it is a strange little shadow box
with a mirror back,
found @ a rummage sale
& I in put little special stones,
one 82 cal lead slug
&
Florence Nightingale's quote,
"I think one's feelings are wasted in words,
they should all be distilled into actions
which bring results."
Not that I totally agree with that which was
the reason for the dinosaurs, 'gators,
rocks & the elephant gun slug
we bought in Chambersburg,PA
(& why I am a nurse blogger, not a war nurse)
Florence was a nurse in the Crimean War
which gives a layer of meaning to her quote.
She started forensic nursing then, lending
sensibility, order & science to abhorrent conditions.
In our daily battles,
 when dodging monsters,
sticks & stones,
we are grateful
& there is no doubt we are guided by
Guardians Angels
obvious after some time
&
 further reflections on the battle.

  1. I am, I think, a bit of an athiest. It is more than i cant understand. It is when I say I am a catholic, I feel silly. I do not feel elevated or anything.

    Yet i believe in guardian angels and the cool things about religion because they make me happy to believe.

    i try to help people, i do and i dislike aot of people who seek to harm others. i dont blame this on religion but myself because i encourage my feelings that are good and try to stay away from shadefreude and happiness in the misfortune of others.
