A window facing this morning. Crescent moon holding the open night sky. Celestial object lying between sun and moon. Present alignment presents itself. I say to this vision, “I Am here”. Witness to Light and Darkness. The wonder “They” offer here. All of All.

Well No…

Its not night. Not a perfect square frame. No perfect circle sphere. But, there is a clear sunlit sky. There is a determined moon. And, there is a clear ying and yang display a common man sees that for him, is a gentle reminder to balance his short fragile life.

Okra…

A first for me. To grow a foodscape has been a dream for a handful of years. A tree was removed in late winter to reveal a yard with enough sun for growth. Blossums herald the presence of those slimey green veggies. Gratitude and Gumbo. Best Wishes to All!

Moons…

Shadow behind me. Eclipse above. To look up would be hazardous to unprotected eyes. To look down into the shade? Slivers of light that dance in solemn quiet humility. Oh what we learn from glimpses of our darkness. Have I danced with my shadow today?

If…

“If they just made them like they used to, right?”  Hey, I grew up with a birth father who expertly remodeled historic homes and structures. This is what he would say before cursing  about the inconsistent or faulty craftsmanship of these dwellings. Fast-forward my search for a NEW car with minimal features after driving motorcycles for over a decade; do I NEED all those features? Which feature IS useful if the “latest technology” won’t start the new vehicle? When is less…more? OR, when is more…less? Life is still amusing.

 

Lean…

The direction of their tilt, the light and shade reveal what these plants are reaching for in this second floor window facing east. Wait, I’m thinking Step 11. We rise to ask/pray/meditate, perhaps in the morning. We’ve learned that leaning into the Energy that brings life at the start of our day, spiritually reinforces surrendered Growth for the next- “day at a time”. Faithful Connection! Heres to the “Higher Power of our own understanding”.
