Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures


Close Your Eyes and Imagine

It is a big sky and all around the wind is blowing.
There is not a cloud in the sky and all around the edge of this island
the sea is lapping and pushing and crashing.
I close my eyes.  The desk and keyboard and stacks
disappear and I stand on a path and
listen to what the winds bring me:
A guitar strums,
laughter tumbles,
winter-dried leaves rustle, compression brakes punctuate
the reverie and the cold afternoon.

The cloudless sky is big, promising snow, and
all around the invitation sounds,
“There is not a think that you cannot do
because you can close your eyes and imagine.”

What ARE You Waiting For?
There are many practical reasons to wait.  Wait for a more auspicious time. For better funding. Ha! for ANY funding! For broader education or more deepened networked connections.  The temptation is to wait until all of those elements align.  Perfectly.  Which is why there are many people who pon
