When someone says something about 1980 or 1990 I have to pause a moment to calculate how many years ago that actually was…and ..truth be told…it seems like yesterday!”

Lately people have been showing up, just popping back in my life as if they had always been here…like 1972 (one of my bride’s maids who I am seeing for the first time next weekend), and 1973 (the fundraiser for the 94 precincts I managed in successful gubernatorial contest who went to lunch with me this past week).

And…it seems…nothing’s changed…and everything’s changed. A great opportunity to consider “Everything is the opposite of what it appears to be and nothing is the opposite of what it appears to be!” And “ out of control, out of definition, out of limitation, out of form, structure, and significance, out of linearity, out of concentricity…”

It is as if I am in a new awareness of simply BEING. And I cannot seem to put into words the joy that brings me…that surrounds me…how the angst of living disappears (worrying about this or that)…when I simply just…be…me.
