I just added a wireless access point giving me fast Internet from the bedroom. As a result, I have taken to waking up with the usual thoughts in my head and writing them down before they escape. Sometimes they reflect in essays that really should not see the light of day as they express thoughts that represent extremes of my thinking just do dump them down to look at in the future. Other times, little poetic thoughts form a loop. Here is the one that hit me today. Its kind of a summation of where I am going.

 

Back to sleep. :-)

Morning meanderings, October 17, 2002 - Hurricane

 

Soft visions of dreams

Of roads not traveled


Free from the children’s pain

Free from the anger and fear

 

            I pray

 

Lifetimes of explorations.

Of new lovers and friends

 

            The gift anew

 

The cycle begins

 

            Again

 

Amen
