If perhaps you can only make a real discovery once in your
life, let it be that of yourself.
Let it burst like water over a dam;

clothes wet and clinging so that at last you may be outlined

curve describing some aspect made tangible, perceivable,
                For it is now and you are here: wholly yourself, and
made flesh in a birthing whose experience leaves you
breathless, new … alive.

    1. A moment of quiet and stillness by the ocean never fails in reviving me and making me thankful.

      I am intrigued by the post that you mentioned, Chatter Master. If you remember where you saw it, please can you drop me a line? I would like to read it too.
