“To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.”
― Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson
We are onto the next thing before the thing before us is barely started or over.
Passing by quickly in search of what’s next.
As if we could find it when we can’t see the bounty that is already before us.
In loss, we miss what we already had.
No do overs.
Once in the moment.
Again in the memory.
Be where you are right now fully.
In the imperfection, beauty, messiness and awe.
Reverence. Wonder. Revery.
“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different.” – James Baraz
