enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

the Big C/Sea/See

the Big C
an uninvited guest who insinuated itself into a nice hiding
hung around until its bread crumbs got noticed
well after it had eaten way too much

the Big Sea
cradles my home and soothes me
its crash and dash and silence
calls on the deep
tethered to the moon
teaching me to yield

the Big See
opens up that crack
follows the zig zag beacon
into the space/place/time
when stillness is a sound
a touch
a moment well lived
thoughtfully given
the only thing that matters

Living life deeply

A visit to the Rock [that would be Newfoundland, for all the CFA's and wannabe's] reminds me that family is precious, that time spent is precious, that loved ones are precious, that tenderness has many forms and that love is lived in moments both profound and mundane.

Serious medical stuff, my own and my mother's, has kept me occupied with living life deeply.  Methinks it will assist in some thoughtful writing and some much needed reading of others'  expressive work once there is more time to devote to it.
 Soon, I hope.....
