Keep it simple, silly

Monday, May 01, 2006


It’s a chilly morning and the covers are friendly and welcoming. I like chilly because it invites cosy. And I like cosy because it is.

E is in a hurry to leave and I can’t find it. I look at the clock and hear that there aren’t many minutes left until we need to go, but the urgency hasn’t hit me yet. Things tend to work out, I suppose. Nothing ever prevented me from being here, now, and that’s not likely to change. There is no place else to be.

This hand just writes and I watch and when it is done I will see what happens then. I notice that when I believe I need to be someplace else that I get stressed, aggravated, and the sense of urgency feels very real. I prefer this. The situation is no different – time wise we are in a rush – it is only that in my mind, in this moment, I am here, not there.

And that could change.

Just hope you appreciate not having a time you need to be anywhere, and having the space to write every morning. Lucky duck, you are.

Like my good friend Johno used to say, "Luck's got nothing to do with it!" And yes, I am extremely fortunate and very grateful for that.
