a recurring thing is happening near
by this pole
on this flattened hill
above that fast winding river down there
you cannot see from way up here
by this pole
a rippling clinging mist is clearing
now defining new horizon layers
way way over there……

The way to carry money……….
Here I am. I have just got back from shopping. I am sitting on the sofa looking at my stuff filled carrier bag. I am in a bit of a fizz, again. The bits I bought are safely in the bottom for sure, but I can only hope the paper money accrued on route ,thrown carelessly in, during frantic purchasing, is still there. I now realize once again that the couple of screwed empty ready salted crisp bags, I also acquired along the way, have unfolded themselves and and are now floating around in the carrier, big time; and they may have pushed out any of the floating money in a flick during my various movements along route! So now I begin my ‘after shopping mantra’ a sort of prayer, about loose paper money which always float at some stage in the carrier bag I will be carrying, quite forgotten, during the various uncomfortable stages of travelling, that is until I get home………
It is good to carry money
In crumpled wads
In paper bags
….repeated three times during the process of emptying carrier bag.
And so my God gradually answers……..in gentle tones:
‘The best way I like to carry money, actually, is messily.
A paper bag is good’*

Feeling better already. Never actually lost anything in a carrier bag. As far as I know.Gill McGrath©
