It was one of those perfect nights. My soul had decided I would be in the room—not knowing, as I often don’t, where the room was exactly. There is something perfect, for my spirit, about entering the flow of joy and following it as it moves me along. There is something wholly alive about living the the moments of perfectly taken care of in that way. I am here now. I am here in the hearing of this clearing and I am writing. My fingers are doing their magic. I am asking for something—for the bump and groove of the sand to trip its way westward and for me to wake up in my above the ground way of knowing, this, too, will yield its spicy delight as some time in tune with weather. What am I writing now? Just writing. Writing in the written sound of sounding out the courage filling its fulfilled places—here and now am i. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, what wants to be written is so hungry now for the eyes of the page. Blogging ever onward, a life lives itself out in rhyme. Perhaps. Time. Perhaps. Miles of courage order themselves one sweet letter at a time. I am here now, in this hearing. I am here now, in this clearing. There is cleansing, still, and always, to do. There is something in the somewhere of what has come and gone before the here and now of this moment. I am here. I am here. I am here. Here in the hearing heard of what is always and only life living itself out in fingers reaching for keys--------oh. Tell me a truth I don’t already know? I am a sham ashamed of something? What? What. This life lives its quiet desperation out of longing—whole enormities of longing—and inside that, there is just this one thing. One thing whispers on one sound of one story in one mind of this beginning. Beginning here. I am here, beginning. What is the here and now hour of this song? Psalming itself out of time? Out of quiet tribes of wilderness longing toward wholeness? What? Courage? Is this? in this night? Of rainy day? I am here. I must put the laundry in. I must find the quarters. I must take the next right step on the wider path of what is possible in possibility. Why does she say there is peace in me now? When I am most afraid? Of what ground will make itself? Soon, there must be palo alto dreams of where to set up my things. Things. Things. How to start clean of things?
We begin wherever we do down the long hallway of truth seeking. Here in this hour of now, the world begins its turning over again—and I become all that I become in this wisdom.
Love loves me. This is precious treasure. I am still here and alive. This is gratitude overwhelming me.
