A Thought Experiment

It's a dark, cloudless, moonless night.
You're outside, lying on your back,
gazing into a blazing, star-filled sky.

Imagine that Mother Earth
is gently holding you to her body
as she journeys through the cosmos.
Imagine, also, that you are looking, not up,
but down into the stars.

You and Mother Earth are moving downward
at breakneck speed
into the vast spaciousness,
with you leading the way
like the hood ornament
on an old Packard.

Can you feel yourself grin?

Aspens Anyone?

When I look closely at a field of aspens,
I see that each tree is an individual,
unique in some way.
Were I to go underground and look deeper,
I could see that acres of aspens
are connected in a single root system -
literally one organism.

I wonder about us -
Aspens Everyone.

An Antidote for Exhaustion

Poet, David Whyte, once asked his friend, Brother David Steindl-Rast, about a cure for exhaustion.  The reply went something like this:  The antidote for exhaustion is not necessarily rest, though in some cases that may be true.  The antidote for exhaustion is wholeheartedness.

  Oddly One

If we follow
Our uniqueness,
We’re all
A bit weird.
Odd ducks
In God’s pond.
Oddly One.
