Well, I have finally reached almost to the top of the pit that I let myself fall into. I can see little patches of hope the color of blue whipped together with white puffy clouds. How did this happen? I don't know it just did. At last I have almost, not quite, sort of reached the rim to the real world. Even thought he real world can be a pretty ugly place to be passing thru.
Like the dog that was obviously lost or dropped off to fend for himself roaming around the neighborhood in search of food. Early in the evening he would creep out from between a house and follow us. I would call to him but off he would run. To where? The deep dark pit that I fell into? Perhaps. Now he is gone back to his owners - I hope.
The food I left out for him was uneaten. I wonder if he knew I was trying to help? I wonder if his owners were bleating like baby lambs at his disappearance? Perhaps. Then - could be they had fallen into that pit and maybe they are still there waiting and hoping for his return. Get out of the pit - I say to myself also.
I think I can, I think I can huffed the Little Engine that could. I know I can I know I can whispered the shattered ego. And then Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall and all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again. Okay so make scrambled eggs. Be creative. Be energetic. Up inside that blue sky with the white puffed clouds is a colorful rainbow waiting to be discovered.
