Afterglow

Published on Oct 18, 2020

My heart is full.

My mind is empty.

The monkey is resting.

There are a few thoughts peacefully floating around.

I don't try to catch them, I just let them float, trusting that they complete themselves into a beautiful picture if I just wait and listen.

My heart is overflowing and bubbling with good vibes.

My body aches.

I'm painfully aware of my mortality.

I surrender.

I find peace and quiet.

This is it.

This is life, and our one chance at it.

Let us fill it with love,

not only on big days, but on all the days.
