I heard whispered:

What I Heard Today While Sitting…Breathing…Waiting…Listening…

the secret of health, wealth and longevity:

when

Life

brings an end to

a

job

a

relationship

a

dream

   etc...

   LET IT GO…

stop trying to resuscitate that which is

  DEAD

release the

PAST

   and move on

This Is What Is Most Difficult…

IT IS THE

SITTING…BREATHING…WAITING…LISTENING…

while impatience and guilt about the

dirty kitchen floor

dirty laundry piling up

and

   this prolonged absence from…

   and longing to return to…

   the kick-ass world of making shit happen…

PLAGUE

   me…

stealing my attention from the

SILENCE

in which

HER VOICE

can be heard

and the

LESSONS

of

the

DAY

   BEGUN...

I Am Slowly Easing Out…

of the box

into which I squeezed myself

more years ago

   than I care to remember

   bit by bit…

   day by day…

      slowly climbing out of the confines of the past…

leaving the old stories behind

   as I create new ones...

it is not a

violent revolution

but a quiet

slowly moving

   evolution…

as I follow that which I cannot

see

along a path I do not

   know…

Sunset on the Hutchinson River…photo by Toni Roberts

none

of

   it…

not one moment of the entire

77

years

of

it

was ever about

the

writing

or

the

   doing...

it was

 always…

in

all

  ways…

solely

about the

   being...

about the

experience

itself…
