A day, not long ago, I read
… I chose not to get my driver’s license … I walk every where. In walking I find freedom and creativity. Sometimes I find peace. I live in my head – except when I walk … I am not walking away from my head; I’m walking through the disconnect between head and body … I walk because I have to …
… and I felt the brushing of a slight disconnect between head and body … and wondered, am I thrown off-balance?
On that same not long ago day, I read
If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live.
~ Lin Yutang
And I thought of past experiences and the future open full with possibilities… and wondered, am I conscious of this day?
Two seemingly disconnected readings. But a time glimpse of the past captured life’s ebb and flow; a seesawing between the easy and relaxed known, and the hard and excited unknown. The epitomes of my soul?
And I feel a brushing, a connect between head and body, a balance … and I hope to be able to hold gratefully, but also lightly; to be able to embrace but also let go… this new given moment.
