Stepping Through the Crack

“Whenever there is stillness there is the still small voice, God’s speaking from the whirlwind, nature’s old song, and dance.” ~ Annie Dillard

“In any case, it is very important to be idle with confidence, with devotion, possibly even with joy. The days when even our hands do not stir are so exceptionally quiet that it is hardly possible to raise them without hearing a whole lot.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

“Sometimes you just have to turn off the lights, sit in the dark, and see what happens inside of you.” ~ Adam Oakley

Lean back and the spine twinges a bit too much. As my back hit the pillow I realized that I was leaning against the heating pad as well. The control was within reach with nary a move of a muscle. Lucky me. This is, I suppose, about something that came to me yesterday at work. Inner peace stealthily arrived and pounced on me. I didn’t stand a chance. It happens once in a while, often enough that my own still small voice doesn’t forget any of the words to the silent song that is peace. Wow, that was kind of a tricky thought to put into words. That is one of the purposes of this blog, to make sure, as far as words are concerned, that I remember to sometime work while I play. And no, I don’t feel I did a good job of putting said thought into words. No worries. The rooster has just begun to crow and the Sun will be cracking through dawn in a few minutes. I am required to attend, so I will grab the camera and go out where I can see the mountains. Castaneda’s Don Juan Matus called twilight “the crack between the worlds”. I think I’ll go step through it for the day, and contemplate Netflix.

Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
