Find and Seek

Today day grey finally found my beard (or I finally noticed it there) and a story also found me. About explored caves and unexplored depths, about people who go missing and people who come back, and about ownership and guardianship, and how great the latter is, and how limiting the former. As Reginald Jefferson Jr. explains the first time he shows his grandson the cave in his backyard, in the story I’ve just started down the road to doing justice to:

“This hole isn’t mine. I just found it, and the things in it, and they belong to me as much as the moon would if I built a picture frame and walked around holding it up to the sky.”

Thank you.
