I am no longer on the brink

I’m in.

stepping off facebook

diving inward

what matters the most to me now?

brother walking the AT

my sons

my partner

my friends


this feeling extends to all i am experiencing in life

we are a global entity

we want peace

we walk for it

we move for it

we sit for it

to know

it is our very own self.

I stand for peace.

musing on maintaining joy

diptych, oil, meeting with the young tulip poplars

not maintaining any particular state 
comfort discomfort
ever present
raw and tender
I am willing to feel all the waves

awareness maintains awareness
without my effort
distinctly not what is coming and going

the joy that knows
all is held
and given

we are charged with responding
with care
with life
as the spring bloom of red maples
show themselves through the winter branches,
as the young tulip poplars meet me with their white signal.
