Chains of life.

He dipped his pen into the inkpot, drawing, designing. Like an artist, every curve, color and hue, every movement, synchronization, function carefully planned. He set down the pen and a bright insect flew from the page. I sprang back in amazement.

Looking up, he smiled. “Do you like it?”

“Oh yes! That’s incredible! How did you do it?”

“Come, there’s more to see.”

He took me to a vast screen reminiscent of the matrix’s  jumbled number texts. Shining, yellow gold spirals gleamed, separate, yet joined by some invisible threads, surging in vital energy to form glistening chains of moving, glowing light rushing through the darkness as if eager to reach some far off point. Thousands of DNA chromosomes to be passed from generation to generation were intertwining, chains upon chains of life reeling through eternity.

He waved his hand across the screen and a vast support system materialized, air, oceans, sun, moon, plants, trees, even flowers all dependent on each other, woven into an incredibly complex web, a vast mass of intersecting golden chains of life. My heart pounded with elation at this melding of art, design, science and creativity. He seemed happy for my delight.

“You could not begin to understand the complexity, or the joy I experienced when the last chain was forged and leapt into being, intermingled, teeming with life,” He confided.

His eyes looked tired. I turned to go. I had remembered, “On the seventh day God rested.”

What is in your handbag?

Er… actually it’s empty (save perhaps the odd bus ticket or tissue). You see I hardly ever think to use my handbag (special events only). Getting around mostly by bike I tend to habitually use a backpack (Even when not cycling). You can stuff it with shopping, books, clothes etc. etc. so much more practical.

So I’ll rephrase the question. What is in your backpack?

Hat, scarf, gloves (it was chilly this morning.)

Wallet, glasses case (I have the glasses on to type), 2 band aids, 3 ibprofen tablets, pen, small pack of tissues and the constant old shopping receipts.

(I’m a practical gran LOL!)
