Strange Little Moments

Such strange little moments there are in our lives sometimes.

Stranger still the  reflections we see in the people we meet.

A man came by my way the other day; a man I had known briefly once upon a time.

Standing in my kitchen we compared lives.

“Chopped the top off a mountain the other day”, he said casually; nickel mining.

“Of course I only direct operations, I don’t do it. So that’s ok isn’t it?!”, he said with a laugh

He commented on the yurt in which we live.

“Oh, my aim is to live as lightly as possible”, I said. “I guess I’m your antithesis.”

“Oh good”, he said, “you can offset my carbon footprint!”

You know, though he said it lightly, I believe he thought it true.
