“Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast” ~Bob Dylan, You’re a Big Girl Now.
It is imperative to slow down in these most hectic times.
We all need to take a breather now and then…it is a sign we
haven’t been completely consumed by the culture.
Sand and water, great teachers to me for the ultimate in be here now.
Slow blessings on you all as the summer this side of the equator begins
to show signs of gentle yielding. A maple leaf on the ground in a riot of red,
the evening air filled with the slowing chirp of cicada, and the waning nights of
searching for the summer triangle up there within cygnus and the big
dipper as well as the others nightly stars.
The meteorologist on the radio here has a habit of telling us the daily
loss of sunlight since we’ve passed the summer solstice. Thank you sir, but
really, I don’t need that ticking clock…just look around. It is writ large on the earth
for those with eyes to see.
Be still. There is magic in the air.
