The ground is moving. The earth is spinning. The air is swirling. The light is flying.
It’s all changing.
Unknowns. Unseens. Understand nots.
Don’t miss it.
The birds feeding outside.
The water boiling behind you.
The deep purple of the grapes on the counter.
The bright green of the limes in the bowl.
Nora watching storytime in front of you blowing bubbles into her leftover lemonade. From last night’s desperate dinner drive through.
The sun filling the expanse of the bay window.
Your butt in full on contraction as you stand at the counter typing.
The whisp of a cat who runs up and in.
The clunk of ice cubes.
The voice of your husband filtering up from the basement.
The wind in the leaves of high spring.
The boil in the pit of your belly.
The craving of a chai mid-morning.
The growl of the trash truck outside.
The piles of laundry in the playroom.
Don’t miss it.
See this. Here. Now.
This is the magic.
This is a life. Alive and pulsing and beckoning you to be Here.
There is nothing to wait for.
Even though your shivering chest thinks otherwise.
And your doing mind craves more.
This Now. Allow it.
See. Listen. Feel.
I am grateful for your reading eye. And I’d love to connect with you.

What else is there beyond your first glance, your first listen?
20 if you dare.
