People know the some of us, but not the sum of us. All of us have some more ‘some’ to show.
Masons, when they start upon a building,
Are careful to test out the scaffolding;
Make sure that planks won’t slip at busy points,
Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.
And yet all this comes down when the job’s done
Showing off walls of sure and solid stone.
So if, my dear, there sometimes seem to be
Old bridges breaking between you and me
Never fear. We may let the scaffolds fall,
Confident that we have built our wall.
"Scaffolding", Seamus Heaney

a little bit.
Every day, I wake up and get the opportunity to walk around the city. And when I get the opportunity to focus on it, I can see myself evolving before my eyes - even if the same changes don’t take place each day.
Most days, I stand a little taller;
Some days, I feel a little stronger;
On a few days, I smile a little wider;
On fewer days, I glow a little brighter.
It’s not much, but I can already see how big of a difference that “little” bit of everything makes.
And it can only go up from here.
