Instinct -


Even though I know we are not in danger, that the waves won't reach us, I find myself in a heightened state of awareness.  I pick up the house, make everything ship-shape which might seem the opposite of what one might do, but I realize I think there is an innate sense in us to leave where we've been in a cleansed state.  I think of humans living in caves.   They might have picked up before they moved on for many reasons.  One they would have needed to take their belongings with them, but I think we may also not want to announce that we were here.  How differently we live today where skyscrapers proclaim, "Yes, we are here."

We've been discussing minimalism here.  How much or how little do we need?   Certainly many right now may be with the clothes on their back and others will reach to help, but ultimately what we "need" may be very little.   

The sun is shining.  Our kitties are calm.  It is an exquisite day.
