Small connections

Trying to pay the bills, I decide on my next tactic. Ebay! I will sell all that stuff I’ve hoarded, knowing it must be worth something.

I jump through the hoops, climb the learning curve, and voila! In one short week I’ve made $10.34!

I am at the post office packing the plates into prepaid boxes. I did not bring enough bubble wrap. I look out the window and see the free newspaper stand.

Opening the pages to crumple up, a story catches my eye. About an Oregon cargo pilot who crashed the plane and died. While delivering packages.

I think about the pilot, who was there because of the plane, that was there because of the packages, who were there because of the people sending them.

If it’s all the same, next time, I’ll choose to get my $10.34 by holding a neighborhood garage sale.
