My Friend

My Friend

I don’t know what to say
I don’t have an answer,
It seems.

My pain is different
My experience isn’t yours,
It seems.

All I know is I’m sorry
All I can say is I’m here,
And I care.

Know you can be real
Know it’s safe here,
With me.

If I could take it from you
If I could carry it for you,
I would.

Perhaps that’s all we need
Perhaps some moments,
Just need sharing.

Breathe with me
Breathe in, I’m here.
You are not alone.

Beyond Control

I recently saw the extent to which I’d been controlling both physical pain and the possible limitations that my body could offer me. I saw how every day I was protecting myself from the past.

Helped my a couple myofascial release sessions, I felt safe enough to let go of the protections that OTC pain meds offered. A week later it feels wonderful to be living in a different reality- physically, energetically and spiritually.

It’s not pain free. But it’s my reality, not dulled or masked.

And here I am, picking my nose.

How Do You Feel?

A few thoughts from a creek side spot. On the difference I feel in perspective and priorities when I get deep into Nature, or other activities that have beauty and a sense of wonder.

How we move through this time in history is important. I know what I want to contribute.
