Musing On The Mother

Musing On The Mother


{Thinking to myself}

"I wonder why folk have to argue and cannot get along and just see how we all need to work together to make this planet wholesome?"

{Pokes at the fire with staff}

"We humans are like these sparks reaching for the heavenly ones. We need some kind of poke to get us activated."

{A wolf howls in the distance}


"We are all here experiencing this planet in this universe. Yet for reasons not entirely clear, we are distracted by our arguments. Hindered by them, even to the death."

{Places another branch on the fire.}

"Perhaps the fear of our situation would be too much to bear if we learned how to focus upon it, and so we distract ourselves..."

Feeling the tiredness in my feet, as I put one foot in front of another, and thinking to myself

"I'm going to sleep well tonight."

Seeing a fire at a distance

"Awesome! I wonder if they would let me borrow a flame to get a fire started."

Taking a few steps closer to the distant fire, I hear Mom's voice in my head

"You know how people are nowadays, they may shoot you."

Slightly shaking my head with a smile

"I've got to talk to Mom about how much news she watches. Although...you never know.

Calling out from a distance to the one by the fire

"Excuse me, I don't mean to trouble you..."

As I am contemplating my thoughts in the opportunity of my aloneness, I hear the subtle hoot of warning from an owl - and before long hear the cracking of small branches underfoot, signifying someone approaching...I focus on the direction of the sound, and then a voice from the darkness calls;

"Excuse me, I don't mean to trouble you..."

I wait until the owner of the voice walks into the light of the fire...

"No trouble at all...please come and share the warmth of this fire with me. My name is Manu. Manu Iti."

I stand and offer and extended hand of friendship...The person before me looks weary and a little flustered...

The one I ask shares a welcoming voice and extended hand, which I firmly grasp back, my face breaking forth in smile

Callum: Thank you very much, Manu. I'm Callum.

I think to myself that the warmth in Manu's shake parallels the fire off to our side. I sit on a short log near Manu and extend my hands to the fire.

I watch as Callum settles by the fire and then turn my attention to the meal I have been cooking on a smaller fire beside the larger one.
I find it interesting that our names share the same theme - that of birds. Perhaps it is a sign of interesting things to come?

The food is almost ready to eat. I am glad that I might have someone to share it with, and turn my attention back to Callum.


Manu Iti: "I have prepared some food Callum - would you care to share in this meal with me?
Then afterwards, perhaps we could swap stories?"


A hint of a breeze dances through the campsite as I finish my words, and turn my focus to finding the plates and utensils.

Peace races through me at Manu's offer of food and company. A gentle breeze flows in, kisses my face, and takes my response to Manu along with it.

Callum: "That would be most appreciated. Thank you for your kindness, Manu. I might have some after dinner drink on me, should you be so inclined, as well."

Manu finds a plate and some utensils, handing them to me with a kind smile that I return. Then Manu spoons a generous helping of food onto my plate. The wonderful smell fills my nostrils, I sigh, and then take a bite. I take a few more bites, lost in the taste, and then remember the human beside me.

Callum: "This is wonderful, Manu. What brings you out this way?"
