Between two rain showers, we went for a walk. I brought the camera along, thinking one never knows when one might see something beautiful. We were well-rewarded with a magnificent rainbow, one of the widest we have ever seen, with a pale double. It was so close, we could have run across the field and jumped into it.
I became conscious of two comments I had made on blogs this morning, both mentioning things I think about doing but don’t or at least hadn’t yet done. One of these was picking up other people’s litter. Walking along, I spied a beer bottle in the ditch. We were only a couple hundred meters from a bin for recycling glass, so I fished it out and carried it to the bin.
99 bottles of beer in the ditch, 99 bottles of beer, take one out, carry t’the bin, 98 bottles of beer in the ditch… A very small thing, but like they say, every little bit helps.
Changing oneself goes along the same lines, seeing things within and taking action, a little bit at a time, so as to become good.
Not that I think I’m so good just for picking up one piece of litter but it is a baby step in the right direction, along the lines of integrity.
In case you are wondering what was the second thing, it is getting rid of stuff, jettisoning cargo, clearing out. That is more difficult…
