I learned to look at hands, which I'd never looked at before...and I learned also that shadows are not black but coloured

Perception & Gratitude

(thinking about Somali famine & drought)

I walk into the Sports Complex after a 13.1 mile run; 90º+ with no water.
(thirsty by choice)

A tween hockey player spits on the floor at my feet.

I look at him and say "seriously? yuck."
Hockey kid, "sorry, but I just got off the ice and I'm really thirsty."

I'm sure he was thirsty. I was thirsty too.

There was water, as much as we could possibly drink within a few feet of us:
cold available relief.
