Thoughts of this moment -

I call and request the form that will give me a medical excuse from jury duty, and it does not feel good to me. I am young and healthy and at my peak. I want to be part of my community, and I am feeling ostracized, unable to participate. I try and imagine a scenario where I could do it, and it seems impossible, and so, I sit with a feeling of exclusion today.

I have always thought I would like a mural on my garage door, and today, as I drive down into my driveway, the sun is shining through the trees in such a way that the shadow of the huge trunk of the pine tree is lit on the door, and many slender branches of plum. It is a delicate painting, like a poem of haiku. It is what I feel I am right now, shadow visible when the sun is right, just a few syllables to summarize the whole.
