Squirrel Church

I went to church today.  For about 15 minutes.  By that I mean I stood inside looking out the window and watching a squirrel do his thing getting ready for winter.  No anxiety.  Nothing on his mind except whatever he was doing.  And he lives OUTSIDE!!  And he’s a lot lower on the food chain than I am!  If only all God’s creatures could live so care-free.  Oh wait — they all do.  Except we humans.  We think we’re so advanced, but for all we’ve gained, we’ve lost a lot that can help us live happily.

Then he was up a tree and church was dismissed, but not before I had gotten a chance to peer through the veil just for a moment — to see through to the other side.  After that, I didn’t return to real life.  Real life was what I had to leave behind after the squirrel disappeared, leaving me to return to my work on this side of the veil — this far less substantial side.
