Orange Carpet 

I’m sitting in a room that’s all up to date and well decored.  The carpet is beige/gray and green/orange. I like the orange stripe. It represents not more than 1% of the total surface area, yet it plays a big part in the whole tapestry of this commercial grade carpet. 

I like the word tapestry. The threads need each other, whether they know it or not. It would be funny if the orange stripe was sad that it wasn’t thicker. It would be strange if the beige/grey loathed the orange. Because, for crying out loud, it’s carpet. We walk on it with our dirty shoes. There’s a lesson here. What is it?  I’m not sure yet. This, I guess, is just part one.
