Locks of Love – Peace on Earth
March 16, 2013 § 8 Comments
My part time job in the city takes me along the Marion Street pedestrian overpass from the ferry terminal. Looking up one morning I spied this sturdy lone lock on a taught steel cable, presumably ready to hold things together should something snap. Seemed like a big job for one lock. That got me musing about the crowd of us trekking to work doing the various things we do to keep things running, making a living, creating comfort for ourselves and others, providing services and products that please and nourish body and soul. I don’t agree with the song that says one is a lonely number. One is a brave number. Makes a difference. That lock, hanging out there exposed to the elements, doing its job. Love is like that. A magnet. Lots of locks.
