Today

One thing I know, is I don’t get today back once it’s gone.

No matter all the worries, frustrations or anxieties, the fantasies and grand illusions, the madness of trying to make sense of people and the way of things…

It’s moot. Life never turns out how we imagine it (considering that imagination is a fantastic, atemporal exploration of potentialities) but it does work out for all involved…

It is our attachments to time and expectations that undoubtedly cause the pain. Most often what we believe we want isn’t what we need…

Sure, we can be more comfortable (familiar) with emptiness and wanting than fulfilment and achieving. Conceivably there still remain some lessons to be gleaned from those faithful shadows…

When we want it so desperately to work — or to have that magic answer to all this weight and waiting — “it” can’t possibly fill the vast crater inside you with a mere sprinkling of sweet rain…

What if it is we who have defined for ourselves parameters with which to expand upon and explore beyond what we have experienced before?

It would follow that what is present on your path now is indicative of your vast capabilities —and your insatiable cosmic curiosity…

While it may not immediately engender solace and a cheerful knowing, we can with no doubt learn in every heavy moment that there is much more going on than what’s immediately evident…

Wherever we are, we are not alone.

When we share the emergent substance through our arts and compositions, it’s conceivable someone out in the collective will resonate — and perhaps discern a deeper understanding in their own story of reality…

Our authentic creativity penetrates to the heart of all matter; it sings a lullaby to the child inside all who in that co-creative moment need to hear it…

Be and do what you love — how you can, when you can, with whom you can. Don’t worry so much about perfect circumstances, for they may never be.

You are more capable than you know, especially within the so-called limited means you may feel you’re forced to do your work. Limitations are a blessing to an artist.

Look again. You don’t get today back once it’s gone.
