Little things

We all know that our lives are a house of cards and that at any moment one little thing can cause all or part of it to come crashing down around us. We carefully stack our lives in such a way that we think very little about the cards we placed long ago, far down in the structure. Some of them were put down without a lot of careful consideration in the flurry of life. They are not the best one or they are standing haphazardly at best.
When a breeze comes we find out soon enough that what looked like a safe house really had big problems. When one falls it doesn’t support those above it. Tears flow. Antique thoughts erupt into the present. Suddenly your attention is drawn to recent decisions. Current events. You look for easy ways to fix it. You might build again on the wreckage you see. You should be demolishing and cleaning for the future but you might just want the tears to stop instead. You might not fear the damage that you cannot see immediately.
