So much and so little has happened since I last posted. I am in the middle of writing about it all to send out in an email to Mystic Tech folk. In the meantime, after returning from Scotland, I got spiritually cranky. Thank goodness for spiritual direction. I realized that I didn’t want to use my September inner entrepreneurial sales “force.”

What do I want? I want to show up and I want to enjoy what is right here, right now since there is so much of it to enjoy.

My good friend, who somehow knows stuff about me even when we are not talking on the phone sent this. Perfect!


Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word.
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.
But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.
Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.
