Here We Are

July 19th, 2012

If life is a process, that means that we are never done. We never “get there”, we just make the most of the journey, and perhaps set some course based on a perceived destination. It feels to me that this illusive (illusory?) destination doesn’t stay put. Good thing it’s just a guidepost or I’d be feeling really frustrated at this point… oh, but wait, I am feeling frustrated!

OK, not horribly so, but sometimes I just feel tired and want to “get there”. You know, are we there yet? are we there yet? are we there yet?

This kind of impatience covers over the cool stuff that is right here; it’s as if I’ve put on blinders. All the beauty and grace that is given in this moment becomes invisible and I race by looking for somewhere to sit down and relax.

Well, you know what? I’m going to sit down right here, right now, and just stop. Considering how crowded the park gets, I think this bench is a pretty good perch. Just enough of a view, just enough privacy, enough sun, enough shade, and a lawn where the dogs can go pee.

All this striving has done tuckered me out and so I hereby proclaim my retirement. Please don’t expect me to get worked up over things like dirt or money or expectations. I am busy, if you can call it that, appreciating what I’ve created here. And when I’m done appreciating all that, then, and ONLY then, will I create something new. You will know because it will be obvious, and because, I believe, you will be creating something new as well. We all will, and it will be something to behold indeed.
