The View from Behind: “A Single Flower”

For some reason, I have always appreciated “the view from behind.” As a child, on the first day of each school year, I was a nervous wreck waiting for the teacher to announce our seating arrangement. Front of the class? 😢 Too much exposure! Far too much responsibility to “be.” A nice, comfy seat toward the back? 😁 Perfect. I get to observe, to “see.” To breathe calmly.

In this blog category, “The View from Behind,” I invite you to join me, somewhere in the back.

May our world see more flowers today.

“Please Little Dove, fly your olive branch to Russia and Ukraine. Drop it on the leader Putin. Cover his heart with leaves of olive. Drop it on the Russian soldiers, who must have babies at home. Drop it on the ravaged land of Ukraine. Drop it on the innocent little children. Stop the killing, Little Dove, stop the hatred, stop the war.

Fly. FLY!

I know it is a long, long way there. And your wings are just dove wings. And you are harboring that heavy olive branch. But I believe you can do it.

You must do it.

The World depends on you, Little Dove.

Please fly.”
