It has been an in-depth day, which I will share later, but visions of water and beauty have played a large part, as they do in all of this lovely world. And so tonight, I share this with you.

Marina Cay
Marina Cay, Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.” — Terence McKenna

Daily gratitudes:
Leftover mounds of snow that look like purposeful sculptures
Chickens roaming in yards
KaVita Probiotic Sparkling Coconut Water


Life With Writer

It must be hard to live with
a writer.
We are always
having a thought
that must be written down
and so,
our eternal quest for a slip of paper
a smartphone notepad
a pen from which we can squeeze
the last drop of ink
if we think
hard enough.
Our poor partners,
always solicitously enquiring
if we are all right,
if something is bothering us,
concerned if perhaps
we are upset,
that when we
gaze out the window at the rain
we are not
melancholy –

well, perhaps a bit melancholy,
but it suits our souls –

we are just
making lyrical turns of phrase
from the droplets
weeping down the glass panes.
Just comfortably spinning yarns
and playing with words
and listening to the dance of the world,
hoping that we can remember the sound of soft wind
long enough to make note of it
somewhere that will last.
