Miss Sophie and I went for a walk late this evening, after the sun was well behind the trees and there was a lovely breeze blowing, dissipating some of the heat from the day.
As we walked down the cul-de-sac, I noticed a flag up on a mailbox, and in that moment, I wished we had flags like mailboxes.
A flag that we could flip up as a signal to say, “Hey, notice me. Stop here for second, could you? Can I please give you some of this that’s weighing on me for you to take away? Will you share something with me that will brighten my day?”
Maybe I’m oversimplifying it, but that’s it. I think that a flag to flip up when the words are hard to say–that would be just what I need sometimes.
Wishing you all the words to say and the people to hear them. And to understand.
Love to all.
