There’s something you gotta know about me:
I love extremes.
Spicy and sour foods that sting the taste buds,
Competitive eating that stretches the belly,
Snowboarding that racks the body against the cold snow,
Blues songs that strain vocal chords,
jazz chords that expand the finger’s reach.
Why? Because our limits are only so until we test them.
In this digital age, we are often hard-pressed to awaken the senses
But they scream to be tickled, excited, and sometimes even shocked awaken
We live not only in 3 but 4D!
Enjoy this life God has given you to the fullest, my friends,
We’ve only got one.
Today I strummed chords I seldom play
and sang notes I seldom sing.
My fingers strained to strike the frets
My voice trembled at the top of my register.
After I was done, I felt strangely alive
and wondered why I so often hold back
from these places,
these wonderful places,
where my blood races
and my spirit soars.
A pox upon the demon of the commonplace,
holding its infamous net of security
and three cheers to the angel of uncertainty,
who calls us “to come and die and find that I
may truly live.”
The Sun shining warm on soft skin
The movement of hand and limb through space
A soft breeze blowing
So aware of every breath
in the space
in the self
weights and barricades cast aside
Meditating on the moment
Rejoicing in every heartbeat
What a great day!
to be alive
