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.
