There is no controlling life.
Try corralling a lightning bolt, containing a tornado.
Dam a stream and it will create a new channel.
Resist, and the tide will sweep you off your feet.
Allow, and grace will carry you to higher ground.
The only safety lies in letting it all in --
the wild and the weak; fear,
fantasies, failures and success.
When loss rips off the doors of
the heart, or sadness veils your
vision with despair, practice
becomes simply bearing the truth.
In the choice to let go of your
known way of being, the whole
world is revealed to your new eyes.
So the poison ivy experience presented quite a journey of interesting exploration into a physical way of relaxing and being and letting it all "hang out" that I was not expecting. Odd and fun and weird and wonderful. Thare you go.... let your imaginations run wild with the details of that... or not.
The transition from a full time insane project back to plenty of me free time is well underway. Each step moves me forward toward a much more pleasant and inviting way to spend my days. Grateful and wiser in many ways I'm looking at fall with new eyes again and playing with body speak. I'll say more and more as the days progress. For now what there is is gratitude and grace... photos - drawing - guitar - singing - comedy - gardens and gifts of conversations with new and future and past friends of all sorts. Hooray!
What shall I create this day to amuse and delight?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
