I am dust particles in sunlight




I am the round sun



To the bits of dust



I say
"Stay"

To the sun
"Keep moving"




I am the morning mist




and the breathing of evening




I the wind in the top of a grove




and surf on the cliff




Mast... rudder




helmsman and keel




I am the coral reef they founder on




I am a tree




with a trained parrot in its branches




Silence




Thought




and voice




the musical air coming through a flute




a spark of stone




a flickering in metal



Both candle and the moth crazy around it




Rose...and the nightingale




lost in the fragrance




I am all orders of being...




The circling galaxy...




The evolutionary intelligence




The lift....and the falling away




What is...and what isn't




You who know Jalalludin




You the one in all




Say whom I am




Say I am You

Next Week
For the Week of Dec 8th, 2008 -- Your personal life will definitely not be boring this week. A Full Moon in your 7th House of Partnerships is bound to bring activity, whether shaking up what you've already got or springing a social surprise or two. Finding your balance can be difficult, though, as your moods can swing wildly with rapidly changing circumstances



Finding my balance can be difficult, both physically and emotionally, but I usually end up on my feet in the end. Isn't that what life is all about?




Loved my visit to Woodstock yesterday with Helen. First we hit the book sale at the library, located on Library Lane. Found my little sampler, "All things must change" at Talisman. When we arrived at the Woodstock Bead Emporium, my favorite source for Herkimer diamonds, the proprietor told us they were relocating. There's truth in that sampler. Found more hands in the magic supply store.
While perusing Candlestock (really), a shop on Tinker Street, I came across a candle of three unusually familiar looking simians. I posed the question, "Have you seen an orangutan lately?" The response was less than helpful. The mystery continues. Refer to the following post:




Today, a baby shower for a dear friend. The cycle of life brought many of us together for a reunion and celebration of the good things. Wine is good. And this is true.

You are the one in all

Say who I am

Say I am You
