    It was excurciating. To find the time to do the right thing. I knew for so long that this job was welling up inside of me, and denying it was both relieving and painful. Now that tensions is released. Undivided desire, in the moment, now. That’s a good life.

  • charmed commented on the post, knows 6 years, 10 months ago

    It wasn’t him who knew how to train me. I’ve always known the internal landscape, like an animal knows his woods, like a child can knows his mother, even like water knows the shape of the vessel it sits in.

    The time of year typically called for a calling together of family and friends. But for us, and those around us, there was an astonishing feeling that everything that meant “family” was scattered to the four winds. Our home, traditions, each individual seemingly spread across the globe. Nothing collected but more dispersed than any other year before.

  • charmed commented on the post, season 6 years, 10 months ago

    It was the season for the apparent warmth that everyone was supposed to feel. This season brought me hope, don’t get me wrong, but I was also hanging on a string that made my position rather precarious. Seasonal warmth was something that, right now, I didn’t have the leisure to feel.

    I tried to tell her a 100 times. The risks involved were well worth it, if she had some skill and focus, coupled by strong desire to win. If there was an ounce of mediocrity in her veins in relation to the challenge, the game would overcome her instead.

  • charmed commented on the post, five 6 years, 10 months ago

    It was 4 o’clock. and that didn’t matter. the doomsday phone call was coming in at 5, and it wasn’t going to be pretty. Peter was holding his breath. He was never one for coughing up the money that was ill spent, or in this case, ill-charged, to that one card he promised never to use.

  • charmed commented on the post, stir 6 years, 10 months ago

    I felt something stir within my mind, heart and stomach. But then I doubted .. maybe the whole experience was triggered by the movement of my breakfast sustenance on its way to become the blood in my body.

  • charmed commented on the post, patient 6 years, 10 months ago

    It was an impressive room. The ceilings, as high as they were, swept down to meet you. Through the eagerness to explore more, he tempered himself. Begging his mind to be patient he finally quelled his eagerness and and decided to feel the moment.

  • charmed commented on the post, available 6 years, 10 months ago

    They realized the haze over the horizon and the clouds moving strangely in the sky. There was much time left, and hardly the space available. They figured at lease another yard might be needed to stretch out the cord and let the piece assemble.

    Once the deal was presented, there was no way that the follow-through could NOT happen. The idea was ripe and the assuredness they had about it was not to be underestimated.

    As he framed his page the design began to breathe life. Though he didn’t know where his pen would take him, the building started to take the most beautiful form. This had always been his method, the trusting, the allowing, of his pen to move ahead as he looked on in awe.

  • charmed commented on the post, July 6 years, 10 months ago

    the heat hung dead in the air. the july sky so heavy, that even the usual swirls of dust were too hot and too tired to jump and swing.

  • charmed commented on the post, roof 6 years, 10 months ago

    I felt I could jump and jump, and never stop. The sky seemed endless, as did the energy that was coursing through my veins, my skin, my brain. As my mind touched each rooftop as I leap, it was as though me, my real body, was there along with it.

  • charmed commented on the post, simple 6 years, 10 months ago

    If truth is simple .. you know, the simple truth .. why does everyone disagree as to what it is. Simple, maybe not to be computed as a simpleton. Go complex, and get smart. Simple truth is for the birds.

  • charmed commented on the post, both 6 years, 10 months ago

    Bottoming out. Both through the top and the bottom. How can that be? Implosion, of course. The secondary result of implosion is BOTH a bottoming out, out the bottom, and the squirting of inner-energy also out the top!

  • charmed commented on the post, cook 6 years, 10 months ago

    Profoundly cooked. That is what I am called to some, who don’t understand that the stance I take is a perspective that works well for me. Possibly, quite possibly, not well for others. Cooked. Baked. Buttered. Hmm, maybe I need some more raw …

  • charmed commented on the post, himself 6 years, 10 months ago

    What is it about him, that tempers my minds yet excites me wildly? There is something about that which exudes from his very skin .. i can describe it only as himself .. oozzing out and speaking to every part of me.

  • charmed commented on the post, past 6 years, 10 months ago

    I’m past it. Over the hump, beyond the hill. Past the past and now forward. Pssst, that past is past. Not too bad a thing to think about.

    under the weather in my under-ware. surely i’ll bounce back above all of this under-affair!

  • charmed commented on the post, local 6 years, 10 months ago

    Local is where the heart is. It’s right in the center – if you can pin it to a precise place – of where you are. Local may not be very nice, just like your heart can be in need of some fixing, but it’s a good place to start making things good!
