Today was one of those days that I just didn’t want to get out of bed. It was 6:30 in the morning and the skies were so overcast that it seemed like it was still night. Not only was it rather gloomy outside, but it was pretty nippy for my south Floridian blood. I struggled to get out of bed, and made my way to the kitchen to fix up a bowl of granola. When I was sick I couldn’t eat any milk so I have been craving cereal over steaming oatmeal the last week or so. I ate quickly as I caught the morning’s international news. Waited at the bus stop which was more crowded than the day before. I guess the people were preparing for the rainy weather that was going to come later in the day.
Even though I was wearing a big fluffy fleece hat, I put my headphones on and pushed play on Sekajipo and the Jungle’s first album Revolution of the Mind-State. I thought that I needed a bit of a boost on this gray Thursday morning. Sekajipo definitely delivered the goods and helped to elevate my spirits.
I was walking along the path with the song Revolutionary Love coming though my Sennheiser PX 200 headphones. The vibrations were coming through so clear even though they had to pass though my fleece hat. That is when I spotted a tiny heart on the side of the road. A heart that had been placed there by some one. It was an amazing synchronous moment. I’ve got Sekajipo in my mind, singing about Revolutionary Love, and then I spy a heart. I would have said that it was a lost heart. One of the many lost and found items that I have taken over the years. But today I saw this heart in completely new way.
This was not a lost heart. It was a found heart. It was part of the Revolutionary Love I have been searching for. There it was. The love had manifested itself in front of my lens. Just another reason to be thankful. I have found a bit of Revolutionary Love that I am sharing with all of you.
