Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

"Hit and Run" lives

Love is being there…
The most precious gift you can gift to the one you love is
True presence
                                Thich Nhat Hanh, True Love, pp. 6,7

the cell phone buzzes,
the computer beeps

the calendar is full of items
both important and mundane

I rush through my day
a “hit and run” person

seldom stopping
to breathe
seldom taking the time
to be present

to myself
or to anyone else

this is no way
to run
