Pigeon Pants

Mr. Paris Pigeon Pants and Making Peace with Progress – a novel-

The true story of a clandestine meeting between a girl and a pigeon in Paris- as captured in film by Jon Tillman. It is not a novel, but it should be, truly.

“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.” –Sir Winston Churchill

A song written by a wonderful lady named Kelly Mitchell has become my most recent theme song. “Make peace with progress or get out of is way.” It is a harder lesson to learn than I initially thought, but I am getting there.

I feel a stretching and a growing and perhaps some reaching. What am I reaching for? That seems hard to say or pin down…. my ideas and notions about the world are being challenged, but not in a way that I am used to- it is not drastic or tragic- it is quiet and it could be ignored if I tried hard enough, but I don’t and so it is here just looking at me – wondering what I am going to do next.
I am making peace with progress… and learning as I go, but with each step- as often happens- I realize how much more there is to learn.
