Games, Darkness, and Distance

Games Darkness and DistanceWe walk along the street, looking at the world through the augmented reality of Ingress. Couples stroll by and then disappear into the darkening shadows.

The day had been a long one, with arguments and hasty words. An evening outing to attempt to salvage the day.

Caught up in the game, he walks ahead. I pause and watch a man pull a dried flower out of a trashcan.

“…remembered the peace of God that Pastor Earl spoke of. Peace that wasn’t contingent on the circumstances…from a place that the storms of life couldn’t reach.” —Mark Goodwin

How do we respond when the storms linger?

I join my husband in the game. The street is quiet as we walk together.
