Hello CSA Members,

Many of you have asked for an update regarding the wonderful Jamaican men who work with us and their families. At this point, many towns and homes still do not have electricity. However, all family members are doing well. Not yet sure about Walter’s banana and coconut trees! It is more difficult to know about the more rural parts of Jamaica. Let’s keep all of these families in our thoughts and prayers as they recover and thanks for asking!

Here’s a poem that makes me smile and think. Hope you enjoy it too!

Bear In Mind (John Martin)

A bear is chasing me through a meadow
and I’m running as fast as I can but
he’s gaining on me—it seems
he’s always gaining on me.
I’m running and running but also
thinking I should just
turn around and say,
“Stop it! Stop chasing me. We both
know you aren’t going to catch me.
All you can ever do is chase me. So,
think about it—why bother?”
The bear does stop,
and he sits on his haunches and thinks,
or seems to think. And then
the bear says to me,
“I have to chase you, you know
that. Or you should. And, sure,
we both know I’ll never catch you.
So, why not give us both a break and
just stop thinking about me?”
But, with that said, he gets back on four feet,
sticks his long pink tongue out, licks down
both sides of his snout. Then he sighs, looks
behind himself, then at me and says, “Okay,
ready when you are.”

Wishing you the best – Justine.
