MEETING INVENTORY

   

The manicurist at the meeting sits and does her nails; the discussion goes on around her as she files away.  Cell phones go off for the people who can’t put their lives on hold for their sobriety.  The knitter knits and the dissenters descend; with the chatting chickens and the grumbling grouse, all these populate the meeting.  It has taken the first half of the hour to take everyone else’s inventory.  I have the remaining 30 to take my own.

  Let your evenings reflect your mornings like the sea reflects the sky.
