Chestnuts Redux

I visited the park again today, alas a lone chestnut seeker wading through the leftovers.  Seems the trees are almost bare now, save one tree, a late bloomer amongst the others.  So my fellow treasure hunters have moved on until next year.   This solitary hunter sat at against the trunk amidst the broken pods, […]

Isness

Last weekend I took a two day class in Shambhala Arts.  It was a sabiki luring me out of my self imposed seclusion.  I longed for discovery, just a single draw from some deep creative source buried within my cells.  Instead, I was bathed in a wellspring; scrubbed clean of the film that has coated […]

Chestnuts

The chestnuts are dropping from the trees. I visit the park daily, often twice, to search for them. Not a day goes by that I do  not see the same three people doing as I am, making slow rounds, eyes moving carefully, slowly.  I have seen people hit the branches as if to hurry the […]

Here

Yesterday I raced desperately around the globe snatching trinkets like a pirate only to still them on my mantle as lifeless idols Today I walked with blindfold on the arm of a man I just met and discovered All I had longed for was below my still feet
