In Light Of This
I am trying to remain at peace in a flurry of the world where I feel compelled to make decisions I have got no handle on, and I can’t even start to think about the possibilities…
But I can’t stop thinking about them.
I have a little place, where I like to hide away, where it all seems effortless. And it takes a little while to get there, for the harmony to sit just right, but by the time we all arrive, I never want to leave, never want to go, I’m happy just to stay… and the song goes on… something like that.
Anyway, the point is, I have this space that’s nothing but a feeling, when something is sitting just right. It’s a harmony about working and sharing and living this life in the space of another life, close enough to compliment.
Most of the time, I don’t live in the immediate sympathy of that harmony, but since the past few weeks, I’ve been luxuriating in it, the easiness and focus of it, the complimentary nature of it. The way it brings out the best in me these days. And it makes me think that I don’t want to leave.
It influences me to stay because there is a ground swell of something happening that’s bigger than me and seems worth the investment of time, energy and pain. So I’m thinking about staying and not assuming that my season here is done when my internship finishes at the end of the year.
