The Big Safety Net

The Big Safety Net

Safety is not what I thought it was. It has to do with how your spirit rolls along.

It has to do with the hands that catch you, the voices that reassure you, and some kind of inner super-hero that makes you brave enough to put one foot in front of the other when you are not sure that you even have feet.

For many months after the fire, I felt like ether, steam, and the thinnest layer of cellophane.

Barely here, and yet confident that somehow I was safe in the universe.

Safe in the universe because we are part of the universe.

The universe accepts you when you have (seemingly) lost everything. It is the greatest feeling to be held by the Big Safety Net.

It is like being oxygen. So insignificant and anonymous, and yet, a huge part of what drives life itself.

As I live and breathe, I live and breathe.

It’s cool to be a molecule !

    So true. I remember, while my mother was in a lonnngg coma, feeling that the true nature of the universe… it’s detached randomness, had been revealed to me. Horrifying, but yet, I was still there, putting one cellophane foot in front of the other.
