You awaken as a child on the wheel of life, which leads to the world tree and the center of the Labyrinth.
Today, the Earth is reborn and I can see it out my window.
The trees leaf as ice crystals form and lightening cracks in the air.
The Flowers sing in their pots filled with reminding.
The weeds seek to steal the light and water.
And the birds come and go freely, enjoying a drink or a meal.
One can learn the cycles of life if they stop and listen and watch.
We are invited to participate even.
So however you celebrate it, through whatever filter you like, life and it’s promise is renewed today in time, rejoice!
What moves the world
Away from fear and greed
Toward compassion for the other
Only ourselves because…
We know loneliness
We know doubt
We know fear
We know pride
We know anxiety
We can stop searching
We can find patience
We can take a breath
We can take a step back
We can see the Self in the Other
Compassion is always the best choice
I have been Homer
And like Ulysses
Soon I shall be Nobody
I shall be all men
I shall be dead
— inspired by Borges’ The Aleph
