In trying to prepare for this move I am put into the position of having to take a very careful look at my life. All the things I have to move are things that we either brought with us from the past, or acquired here; and some of them are things that only I brought along and acquired. The latter being generally in the realm of thoughts, ideas and so forth that felt personal to me.
Now, that I am committed to this change of process/venue I see that I must do more than glance at the baggage I’m choosing to take with me and that which I leave entrusted to a future, which currently is wide open. Of course the future is always wide open, we rarely see that because of our own plans and designs having primacy in our view the world(s).
The earth revolves around the Sun and we think it also revolves around us and our concerns. Turns out, one of those is not true.
In dwelling I seek a refuge from
That, which doesn’t tarry:,Those
Thoughts, feelings, yesterdays,
Tomorrows, ideas and plans,
Hopes and dreams; the Stuff of
Distraction, the Unpresent where
I find only a me, a dock, a platform,
From which I dread to venture. Thus,
Yes, thus, is the road not taken…
