fresh & nuanced


if you move carefully

through the forest,


like the ones

in the old stories,

who could cross

a shimmering bed

of leaves

without a sound,

you come

to a place

whose only task

is to trouble you

with tiny

but frightening


conceived out

of nowhere

but in this place


to lead everywhere.

Requests to stop what

you are doing right now,


to stop what you

are becoming

while you do it,


that can make

or unmake

a life,


that have patiently

waited for you,


that have no right

to go away.

~David Whyte

when I sense and feel into the next moment instead of ruminating….

inquiry for today~ go slow and be patient with the deeper discomforts…..

having a moment….

I am losing precious days.

I am degenerating into a machine

for making money.

I am learning nothing

in this trivial world of men.

I must break away

and get out into the mountains

to learn the news.

~John Muir
