Good Lord. How incredibly touching. Whether or not Earth is all we have, the follow up or the pre-cursor, I’m glad, so glad David Clark is alive and well and wrote you here. What mysteries separate us from ends and beginnings. Appropos…3 days ago here on Sunday a local guy had a massive heartattack, which he survived. He’d gone outside to talk to a customer, offered a cookie, gone back in, had a heart attack at his desk. The customer, because of the cookie, popped back in to say goodbye. Saw him, administered CPR. Another customer, woman and her 14 year old son had stopped in. Called 911. The fire dept. and ambulance arrived and took over, they were brilliant, got a heartbeat, got him to CHOMP. The 14 yr old wants to be an EMS technician. A cookie altered the course of history. We live in times where CPR may be enough human touch to restore life, and is a modern skill. And a chocolate chip cookie can, if given the right time and place, produce resurrection. Hoorah for life. Easter has sprung up on the shelves of Safeway and all our dawns are golden.
What a great story! I will never look at a cookie the same way, again.
