The Mark

There are no buttons on the shoulder of our shirts, that we can tap and Scottie will beam us up, no magic transporters. As happens so often in our rush, our pain, our desire to escape or simply find a moment to breathe, we overshoot the mark. It is not the shoulder we need to tap. It is the heart and with the tap, the gentle pressure of our hand, believe.
