LIKE A RIPPLE IN TIME

By Al Garcia

Like a pebble, tossed into a pond, our life is like a ripple in time.  To imagine that one life -- a beating heart, a soaring soul -- has the force to change the course of time.  One simple act of any type, be it kind or cruel, heartless or caring, produces waves that roll across the breath of time.  The power and force of a simple pebble like us, deceiving and profound.

We are cast, like fragile stones of clay, into the maelstrom of troubled and uncharted waters.  And for one brief moment, we become the force that moves the hands of time, before we sink into the tranquil depths below.

And though we may find ourselves submerged beneath the waters, it is the ripple of our force and energy that continues to stir the flowing waves of memories and of dreams once shared, once lived. 

It is the parable of life.  We are like a ripple in time, a never-ending wave of texture and substance, moving across the surface of a sea of dreams, stirring and creating waves that never end, like a pebble tossed into a pond.
