Midnight Mass

The people want to be good. And life wants to be happy.

In Portsmouth was born a kitten blind and with an inoperable spinal condition that rendered his rear legs useless. But he was adopted from the shelter by a woman, and then students at a local school built him a wheelchair. Because people want to be good.

And the kitten, he doesn’t know that he’s hurt and sad and poor: he likes to run on the floors, listen to music, bat things around with his front paws, just like all the other kittens. Because life wants to be happy.

Someday all of the humans will devote all of the resources to all of the creatures. Including each other. Because people want to be good. And life wants to be happy.

That I may not live to see it, that doesn’t mean it’s not Real.

Because I have been to the mountaintop. And I have looked over.

    What a beautiful conclusion this is to a day spent in the warmth of others.

    It was wonderful to hear this piece from the album ’December’ by George Winston. I haven’t listened to this album in a long time; and as I listen now, I think how eternally touching such heartfelt music can be. May that spirit always be your reality, and may it continue to spread eternally.
