Franky always was a sensitive soul.
Loud noises startled her. In the summer, when the sun was readying itself to slumber for the day, her friends would get upset. They knew their friend was less interested in fun and teenage hijinks than the decisions she had wrestled with. She would sit on her porch swing and hum among the chirping crickets. She admired the draining primary colors from the sky’s canvas while warmly welcoming the tertiary.
Growing up, she kept a vegetable and herb garden in her backyard. She never forgot hearing what effects overfishing had on the ocean’s ecosystem… She always yearned to do her part.
At twenty years old, she entered a nunnery. She believed she could do the most for the planet by praying for it from a distance while making no waves in the earth’s ocean. It’s the decision she never had to think twice about.
