Listening to the wind

Do you ever listen to the wind? Does it ever appear to know just which way to go? Of course, it couldn't really "know", it just is flowing; going in the direction that we perceived it is. Truth is, we see it moving, tracing, displacing forcefully at times like it was really sure, its direction held clearly like a commitment was made. Yet it does not decide, it just is.

Perhaps it is for this quality that I enjoy listening to the wind.

Systematic notions

Of disclosure.

If so, laugh then go...Wake up and unfold

the Potential,

Your inventions

Don't chastise
Your success - Just be your Best

I wish I was the moon

Tonight as it is as big as it gets with a steady beam outcasting shadows in the night, it glows bright. Sunshine from the other side nightly reflected, tonight the moon appears super sized through refracted hot summer air on the horizon. The sky and thoughts and words some how all seem clearer...

is it my new location? is it the start of what lies ahead? is it that I already long for you? or is it simply the meditation of sky alone with the silence and all this great light?

Are you die hard?

Among those who carry old habits that seem to take never along for a change – this is a story Dave shared with me during one of our first and last visits together. He said, "One well intentioned volunteer, after a full day of collecting garbage and a great wrap-up bush party barbeque", while on their way back to town, "tossed the expired cokepop can (he had just polished off), out the window of his truck!" Well, for Dave, everything just then came abruptly to a full-stop.

You could see it in his eyes.

Staring back at him from across the cab was the perplexed 57 year old man who, obviously oblivious to what just happened, wondered, had Dave forgot something back there?...

In disbelief, and short of breath, Dave tried hard to forget what he just had to bear witness, as he slowly began to drive again, he was silent, and tired

and looking forward to being home after a full day of dealing with other person’s dispositions. Tomorrow was a new today afterall and you never know? Things Could Change.

Things are looking Up

About one of the greatest things life in a northern town offers you is like tonight when on a clear night you’re outside and the air is fresh and your awareness moves past the chirping of crickets and the neck moves around and the head tilts back and up above you is a dark sky filled with more stars then you ever thought you saw before and as the lights flare you think could it be like this always…

Stretch it wood yah!

Want to stretch your body a minute through a little fuller range of motion? about your mind ? for a moment... go ahead stretch it - Think about the ways that you move through your day and define the muscle tissues that's yours to use (e.g., your brain). Now, slowly move beyond your last greatest extention... did you know that something significant can happen just then when your reaction changes. Beyond the range you choose you see things a little differently.

Is it, do you think, possible to think things through a fuller breadth of perspective with the mind already set?

Perhaps it is only when the benefits of the more opened mind are experienced that we choose to move through to change what we can with our own new found grace and confidence ?

I practice moving through the day with a little greater awareness of my intent, especially when my actions support the mind that strives to learn to see the world through a little wider lense - Evidently, it is said, our synaptic reflex does move us through a little greater range of motion each and every time we stretch it...

Renewing the soul of happiness

For all the peace and kindness one could ever hope for, all the understanding and love a child could ever need, and all the consideration I’ve come to know through you, thank-you for all that you've given to me. Was great to share some life with you in another northern town.
