      OH, EARTH, YOU'RE TOO WONDERFUL by Barbara Biddison

      B6 16I'm reminded of Emily in OUR TOWN who dies young and then comes back to earth for just one day. "Oh, earth, you're too wonderful for anyone to realize you. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it--every, every minute?" I walked with my dog early this morning. It was 45 degrees and sunny. For half an hour everything was perfect. Maybe coming out of a pandemic is very much like coming back to earth was for Emily.

      Just being able to walk, nobody around but me and my dog, not wearing a mask. Thinking about the joy of seeing friends over a wonderful meal last night. Thinking about the arrival of family in a few days, all eight of us in our house at the same time, for the first time in a year and a half. Fully vaccinated bodies being able to hug. Oh, earth....

      There is a lot of upheaval in the world these days. Often it makes me cry. But I try to focus on what I actually can do and feel where I live. Thanks for the powerful reminder, Emily.

      [OUR TOWN of Wellsboro again offers Town Band Concert tonight on the Green, parade on Saturday, HG Choirs singing again, summer theatre arts camp for kids in July, Acting Up afternoons, radio show auditions, women's project new directors workshop....whew! Oh, Earth....]
