For A Person

For a Person

For a person to taste

For a person to ride on

For a person to see

For a person to write with

For a person to live in, play on, watch

For a person to sit on

For a person to buy

For a person to give

for a person to sell

For a person to eat

For a person to read

For a person to build

For a person to enjoy

For a person to appreciate

For a person to praise

For a person to sing

For a person to ski

For a person to sail

For a person to fly

For a person to park

For a person to grow

For a person to learn

For a person to stay safe

For a person to stay warm

For a person to stay dry

For a person to communicate by

For a person to remember

For a person to get well

For a person.

All these things we hurry around to create have one thing in common- they are for life, they are for living.  In what we do, we often forget that a person is why we make these things, buy these things, sell these things.  Don't let the "things" become your master- after all, they are servants.  The things do not care if they are not nourished, cherished, loved.  But who these things are for, that is why they are here.  So a person should be held above them all.

My thoughts as I rode a train along the Hudson River to NYC May 2, 2016.
