a little note
or was it the sea
that wrote boat:
stay afloat
blue skies are on your spray

Pause



when i do take a moment to just pause and actually see feel breath notice
all that already is,
there is a powerful knowing without it being knowing
that life really is a mind googling ever changing
continuing blossoming 
wonder.
and when you feel that 
even if it's for a micro second on your way out the door in the door
opening a door,
then thank shines through
 tiny hand leaves breathing veins
and the day unfold follows

tiny steps


I realized that just thinking about something isn't going to make it a reality.  
Action.
 Moving towards that which you want to create.
 Every day. 
Even if it's the tiniest 
fragment of the whole. 
These steps, even tiny steps matter. 
They add up and bridge each action to the next. 
Sometimes I forget about my mountain.
I see other people's mountains. I see trails that twirl and meander around a lake. 
I ponder about trails that twirl and meander around a lake. 
Sometimes I have absolutely no idea how I will ever build a spiraling staircase around a mountain on roller blades with no map, no scaffolding, and only popsicle sticks in my pocket. 
But I keep on going.
Clarifying my mountain even as it changes day to day.
