Where’s the Magic?

 

“While you live… you have a duty to life…. The fey wonders of the world only exist while there are those with the sight to see them…. Otherwise they fade away.”
— Charles de Lint

 

Today in the grass
I didn’t see a butterfly
I was too busy talking
on the phone.
It flew on unseen
and I never knew what I missed.
The sun went down
Beautiful fire lit up the sky.
We walked on the beach
I was so focused on telling
you about my day
that the chill remained.
The crickets sang
and in the distance
a busker blew a soulful song
on her saxophone.
I was listening to club music
on my iPhone.
I wish there was magic in my world.

Quote of the Day – May 6 2012

“I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.”
― T.S. Eliot

Stillness…
mind keeps circling
stillness
until a thought comes along
centring
What was that about my dream last night?
clearing
Did he mean what I thought he did?
Ommmmmm
I’m sure I fed the dogs tonight
Ommmmmmm
breathing in and out
Ommmm
shoulder is itching

and so it goes..tho eventually if I let whatever wants to come up come up without fighting it…eventually I find myself stilling..the whole trick is to go with what comes…
Blessings, G
