Responsibility. A word I sometimes use at whim, fitting it into any situation, sometimes with sincerity, other times as a throw away such as have good day.
Response-ability; the ability to respond. That throws the oneness back on me; I can’t use it a throwaway any more. I must now ask myself if I have the ability to respond to a particular situation. Maybe yes, maybe no. If yes, my commitment begins, be it hard or easy, time consuming or short, joyful or sorrowful. If I take on a responsibility, I’d better do the best joy I can.
