I have been wondering for some time what to "blog" about. And I recently had an inspiration. It comes from something I saw on a ferry trip I was taking to meet my sister and dad for Father's day. As I watched the scene unfold, I was reminded of the difficulties of being with those we love when we perceive they are in distress..... I was watching the sun on the water when I heard a child, although not a very small child, crying and saying over and over in what I heard as a loud tone, "We have to hurry! Mama, hurry! You don't understand, we need to hurry! Hurry! Hurry!" She sounded so distraught that I turned to see a girl, maybe 8 years old, pulling the arm of what I assumed was her mother in the direction of a table infront of me. Tears were streaming down her face and her face looked terrified. They joined two teenagers at a table in front of me. "We have to hurry!" she exclaimed, "before the boat lands!!!"
