Learning, what and how

We learn all the time, that’s for sure. We don’t have to go to school to learn, but when we go to school we learn there too. What is it that we learn? That is the question, an important one, the only one that really matters. What do we learn? Once that question is discovered,…

Slow down or race right along

Chasing is exhausting Yet we chase We are born into the race And so we learn to hurry up From early on Tired the norm Our state of being Hard to remember Anyway There is no time for that Remembering Life’s too short for that Who wants to live in the past Anyway Let alone…

Laughing again

Without this, the willingness to be truthful, pretense becomes the only alternative.” from the Alchemy of Voice by Stewart Pearce (I think) So if…

Expansion

I’ve been looking for space more space inner space outer space living space breathing space not exactly astronaut space just more place to move and breathe and have my being space to discover me without judgement without criticism without rejection ouch! that awful word and feeling that made the me withdraw masks and pretense is…
