Here I sit
wondering what to
It used to be that I was
busy 500 percent of the time.
But now that I’m trying to cultivate
BEING in the present moment
feeling the sensations of flesh and muscle and bone
inside my body
watching the things my mind says and
wants to do.
Now that all of that is going on
there are moments
I am confused about what to do.
I think I should be accomplishing
When really all I want to do is
Recently I started guitar lessons
because I love the sound and feel of
fingers against strings.
The first lesson was fun
But then I HAD TO LEARN A SONG.
I had to focus on counting
And chord changes
SOMETHING DIDN’T CLICK.
The fingers against strings
and the resounding of the guitar
around my heart
So now instead of lessons.
I am gong to pick up the guitar
And cradle it against my chest like it is a baby
And I am going to set
my fingernails against the strings
and see what happens
