Benchmarks

I like living in closed spaces with curtains drawn. The solstice may pass unnoticed in a lockdown situation. Heavy rains and dark clouds, anyway  play a partial block to daylight.

I wonder if day and night look forward to equality for six months, or is it something they take in their stride. Day in one part of the world is night somewhere else, so does it really matter? It is just a perception humans and other living beings carry.

Equality is an imposed benchmark, when we compare ourselves with else, and feel more or less privileged. It is one of the battles we draw upon ourselves, while living in a social structure.

  1. Brilliant, Reena.
    “alone by myself, soul shines brighter than the sun” to realise this is a wonderful thing. I like the questions posed, such as: “I wonder if day and night look forward to equality for six months”.

  2. I got caught up in the words “alone by myself”, and found myself contemplating being alone in the midst of others, an entirely possible aloneness!
