An Underground Enemy
As I tried to cut a stem or two of chard, it seemed that the plant was loose and then I realized all the roots had been eaten. I had to fix the whole plant for lunch and now it won’t be able to grow as I had hoped, throughout the winter into spring. Some kind of rodent, I suppose.
It made me think of the economy, seemingly flourishing, but actually built on debt, lies, greed.
I have faith that if we choose to do and be good, there will be a trickle-down effect and all the world will be set right eventually. I cannot clearly see the details but if a lion can lay down with a lamb, the rodents shouldn’t be a problem anymore either.
