a whole lotta nothin

Once empty careful what you fill with

Look how far I can stick my hand in the cracks

Tread on me lightly

Perhaps the view would be better if I lay face down

Don't pull with your arms push with your legs

Really what good is a compass without a map

What good is a map if you don't know where you are

I want to lie with the tree that fell by itself in the forest - face down

If I keep pushing maybe I'll break through

Sometimes I miss the frozen lake and the hollowing wind

Great Plan B/alternate advice/right brain wisdom.

I love the way you throw out these disparate gems of re-visioning and yet, you pull them together in places, connect the dots.

Keep pushing with those legs. You'll break through. I have a clue.

Bless you, you're on tree time now. No maps. (Or as Van would say, "No Guru, No Method, No Teacher.")

Definitely the legs: definitely.

Morning, JS. I liked the poem although some of it puzzled me. For me the face down part works. So did the kid sticking her hand in a crack. Fun stuff there. Kind of solitary exploring.

I really like the news that you are to get yet another interview. Same place?

We've got rain!

Hope! & Hugs!
