The table I had waiting.

I couldn’t care less if what you say doesn’t come out as precisely as you wished Or if you don’t hold as much knowledge about that thing that you thought you should. I couldn’t care less if the way you do what you do Fails to meet some standard of him or her or that. I am well aware you are more than the words I haven’t yet heard. More than the knowledge or skills […]

Direction.

Standing in the middle Where east meets west, And north meets south The sun shines down warm in this spot And the breeze is quiet and cool, Patiently waiting, circling the soul that has, for whatever reason, Found itself paused in the middle. Whether for weariness or fear Or for grief or disappointment, Or some other such thing. The calm of the middle will always be here, encircling, warming, holding, until the breath has found […]

Are you finished?

Don’t stop speaking. Unless you are finished. If your speech falters and fumbles and there then comes this fear-shadow that insists you should now be quiet, What of the words, of the wisdom, of the light – Still left hidden behind this only-momentary falter? If you know that you know you had more to say, that there’s more to be heard here, pause. You’re human. Take a breath, Try again, please don’t stop. You aren’t […]

The Ocean that holds you: Patience

  Within the bounds of Patience, is an Ocean holding you. Within the waters of Patience is a peaceful current that, without even trying, has a will bent on carrying you to the next thing. Within the bounds of patience, hope, not despair, is found. Patience. When we find ourselves standing in this mysterious space; remember it is one that holds, rather than breaks, the promises made out to you. Patience sees. It sees beyond […]

Hope is on her way.

Painted a bit of a heart-warming mess of tones and textures this afternoon. For me, these tones reflect the sweet moment of finally sensing the warmth of hope in the midst of seasons that have, at times, been somewhat grey and gloomy. Hope always arrives; if she hasn’t yet, do not fear, for she is most certainly on her way. The thing about the nature of hope is that she does not, and will not […]

Here.

Here. Where it’s all happening. Quietly. The people, The places. Sometimes the here isn’t as we had hoped. Sometimes it’s beyond what we had hoped. But. Here is all we’ve got. Life has a way … of only happening here, Anywhere else holds a little element of… illusion, At least partially. Not that we shouldn’t dream, We were made to dream, and imagine, For this is what creates Beauty and movement in all the here’s […]

Sometimes when I have to drive somewhere, and have someone else with me. I rely on their direction; before thinking, or sensing the way for myself; particularly when I have traveled the road a few times before, but not quite enough to be certain. // But. When I am alone, when the passengers aren’t there, I tend to actually know the way. And I wonder why that is. // It’s not that at this point […]

Power enough to step.

Faith and fear. They both have exquisite imaginations. The ability to dream up powerful outcomes for any given moment. Fear dreams up potential dangers that may lurk unseen in the dark; Faith dreams the future in a quite beautiful, rose tinted light; possibility. And every day, Every moment, gives us the opportunity to exercise one, or the other. Both valuable in their own right. Fear in its essence, is protection from danger. Faith is courage, […]

Heartbeat

We can be certain, oh so certain, that at the point of apparent loss; of dreams shattered hopes, That the essence of what is good in its midst, Will continue to beat Despite what appears to be ‘lost’ And gone Feeling like Chaff in the wind perhaps, when the life-wind blows eerily through. But whatever it was that formed that desire, whatever it was that dream was riding upon whoever that dream was dwelling within […]

To be seen.

  Yeah. Ignorance might be bliss. But we weren’t called to be blind, To hide out safe, in the dark. We were called to see and be seen, To live as selves totally revealed, by the light And in the light. And yeah, to see, and be seen, It’s not always bliss, in the light It’s uncomfortable, Revealing, of both beauty and flaws. But to be seen? Is the only way, That this love-light has […]
