The Expansiveness of Distraction

“You often meet your fate on the road you take to avoid it.” ~ Goldie Hawn

“I have noticed that even those who assert that everything is predestined and that we can change nothing about it still look both ways before they cross the street” ~ Stephen Hawking

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.” ~ John O’Donohue

It’s been a while since I woke up and got out of bed at 3 AM. Kinda nice, really. There’s someone running some heavy equipment, not too far away. At 4:30 AM. A couple of dogs were barking at the noise a short while ago. Otherwise quiet. I saw a meteor. That’s what put me in an expansive state of mind. That’s something that is quite like water in that you cannot grasp it. That’s the whole point. You enjoy it. You don’t have to do anything with it, and yet you can – if you so choose. I’ve got somebody on my mind and that’s what started the whole thing. It’s proving to be sort of distracting. I’ll just have to live with it, I reckon. Other than that? Yeh, whatever.

Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
