“I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait.”
― Walt Whitman
I didn't quite make the 5 am cut, but what the hell, I'm up, I'm awake, and I'm alive.
The coffee is poured, and I've got the music playing.
How was your weekend?
Did it live up to your expectations?
Mine came and went — as always.
Life, eh, it never stops!
Today, I'll be on my high 'legal' horse — for all the good it does me. I know there are a few things to do, but I'm up for it. Even if there isn't much to do, I've got plans, always plans, and I'm not going to waste a single, conspicuous moment twiddling my thumbs or whatever it is my dumbed-down ego expects of me.
I know it's becoming my light motif, but we are here, alive to this moment and that, my dearest and nearest, is all we'll ever have. Oh sure, it's OK to ruminate on all that might be different but nothing's going to change in this moment. It can't: it just happens with or without you ❤️.
