Umbrellas

Under My Umbrella
I love umbrellas. I think they are cool. When I was a little boy watching the sci fi British show called "The Avengers", I thought John Steed was the biggest bad ass ever with his multi function umbrella (I also had a crush on Emma Peel). On the other end of the spectrum, the Penguin used his for evil. But I digress.

We use them for protection. We use these fragile devices to protect us from the elements of rain and sun when we are out and about. Wind can bend them or blow them away. Inexpensive ones may not open or close well. 

I am going to cut to the chase here. 

Some of the things we use to protect us are thin and they are fragile and sometimes fail us, but they are elegant, beautiful, and overall, they work. We may not be able to fend off ninjas with one, but they do keep us relatively dry and give us shade when we need it.

Know that some of the things you use to guard your heart are fragile and also know that it is okay to close the thing and sing in the rain or get a little sun.
