Life Gives Us Choices

Eleanor Lerman's poem "Starfish" talks about how life lets us choose how we want "our eggs and coffee," then goes on to say:

Then it sits a fisherman
down beside you at the counter who says, Last night
the channel was full of starfish.
And you wonder,
is this a message, finally, or just another day?

And of course, there is much more to the poem. You can read it on The Writer's Almanac by clicking the link below this entry.

Prompt for the day: Reflect on life's choices. Start with the small choices of THIS day, then reflect on something bigger if your thoughts lead into that. I hope you'll read Lerman's poem.
