17 May


There was a jumble

of letters and spaces,

flashes and warnings.

Reboot, you say?

Easier than it


I forget about that little

black button.

We can get a rapidly duplicating

virus in our thoughts

that sends out

emails of desperation

to all our lists.

Can you read the bubble over my head?

My cartoon avatar

gets full of ideas about

who I was then,

who I might be tomorrow,

in both a large font

and an overlooked

small print,

which can be tricky.

The tiny script

is almost invisible.


Sometimes it seems

we have to give the floor to

the telling of a shadow

of self –

or it forms into a sticky goo,

messing with the hard drive.

Let it have its say

sdo giaeo ;dfja eot wpty q2 p398a[

There is no limit

on the refresh button

who who who who who who who

let it talk and soon you will see –

so boring.


clear screen,

much better –

nothing is the

something something.


Oh, and when blank(ity)

blank meets

blank(ity) blank

kaboom –

where once were words

explodes into

whole new worlds

beyond this old and dying


We are erupting something new –

step through here —–> 0

and disappear

    That was very surprisingly liberating. Disrobed from the myriad of organized letters, clever thoughts, ceaseless catalogues and chattering questions, I refresh. Who who who are you?!?! I do not know. But you taste delicious.

      Who asks who, and who answers? Won’t it be cool when we open the wordpress window and it is full of empty space and we absorb the message left there? Hope you are doing well this fine day in May! Always such a treat to see you! xo!

    This is precisely why the Buddha recommended the Middle Font.

      On one hand the font is large; on the other it is small, but I do not have a third hand…such problems! 🙂

    Even while enjoying the amazing beautiful nature of this space I am temporarily occupying way down south, I struggle with….remind me….what is the point?????? A bit painful…..

      Very painful! Good question! Sometimes the more beautiful the setting the harder feeling not okay can be, it seems to me. You are so loved in my heart, you know! what a gift to me that you share the real in real time – You kick up my desire to make it all better, but I cannot. But I am with you solidly in the asking and listening – Or maybe in some angry, thrashing foot stomping in the sand. kicking up a mess. I was just thinking of you when your note came in, wanting to wish you safe travels home, wondering how you were, sending birthday thoughts. Enormous heart hug sent – can you feel it? xo! m
