The Miner. Sunday January 28, 2018
KVELL (a Yiddish word meaning to be extraordinarily pleased)
Poor old Moodscope I use you like I use my friends :-(
When I'm down your always there,
When I'm up your always there,
When I'm low I do my score.
But when the Dementers come or I fall down that mine hole, I use you my dear Moodscope like I use my friends, even the feathered ones.
I stare out the window, looking at my feathered friends pecking on the food that I can't really afford to buy, but I do it because I want to give something back to this world and be remembered to be a better person.
I can hear the vicar at my funeral, who knows nothing about me saying "The Miner... she liked to feed Gods birds."
When I visit the mine, I use you my tiny feathered friends I don't feed you, or clean your water trough, it's full of sludge. I am the Zombie staring out into the garden.
The little feathered friends bathe in the two stone troughs by the tree with the fancy bark, one trough bought by a piece of my heart, the other bought my someone who took a large chunk of my heart... that's if the water is clean.
Am I in the mine or am I in the garden?
To see God's nature flapping their wings & swinging on those food stations, it gladdens my heart & I feel KVELL! This replaces a tiny piece of my heart.
(I'm not religious, I use god down the mine, like I use poor Moodscope.)
I heard of this Yiddish saying at work - KVELL it means to be extraordinarily pleased. This was issued by my company on an email as a thank you to its staff, it's a company in the US, one of the richest top ten companies to work for; you may have read that email too?
If not, before you get envious of my job... hold that thought, I'm just a temp, on a low hour's contract going down the mine. It suits me to temp even though I'd love a permanent role, am I fit enough to give up mining?
KVELL, it made my heart glow to learn a new word, I could use it in a book that I always wanted to write, but never did.
Staring just staring, caring just caring, I am The Miner constantly climbing out of the mine.
Do you use people?
How do you want to be remembered?
RATG challenged me to write a blog...this is my first one.
