A Good Day to Simmer


“A priest once quoted to me the Roman saying that a religion is dead when the priests laugh at each other across the altar. I always laugh at the altar, be it Christian, Hindu, or Buddhist, because real religion is the transformation of anxiety into laughter.”  ~  Alan Watts

“Mathematics expresses values that reflect the cosmos, including orderliness, balance, harmony, logic, and abstract beauty.” ~  Deepak Chopra

“Writing is an act of faith, not a trick of grammar.”  ~  E.B. White

Honestly – I could easily let this post go out with the quotes alone as text. They, when viewed together, say a lot, and the further truth of it is that I am not sure I could say as much. Luckily there ain’t no need to compare the two; and besides, I’m writing a little bit here, so it ain’t even relevant one way or t’other. Says me. This day promises to be a day of freedom. I can’t describe exactly just why except to say that I do not feel attached to any outcomes in particular. Who am I? I suspect that is the big question that has the potential to set my soul free. But the problem with that plan is that my soul is already free, so ain’t no settin’ needs done, thank you very much. Deep tired and achy, that’s me this morning. And there is one big blue sky sittin’ just past my window. It was weird, I had some intense dreaming happening this morning. What I woke up with is the memory of three women playing crucial roles in the dream. There are no details, just feelings. I’ll have to toss the dream into the cauldron of my mind. Let it simmer. Yeh, this is a good day to simmer.

Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
