Hurried Woman....

The past two months
there has been road work 
in the middle of the road
traveling down the hill
from where we live.
The entire community 
knows about it...

So this morning
while driving to class
a young woman in a big, grey, Ford truck
sped up to cut me off 
to get one vehicle ahead
of me...

It was like she thought
she was invisible
and no one could see
her disregard
and rudeness.

I had left early
because I don't like to rush,
so I observed her
but did not allow her actions
to disturb my drive...

I watched her break lights
go on and off
as she weaved herself
in and out of cars
all the way down the hill...

I'm choosing to believe
she had an emergency
and praying she got there safe.
I bless you hurried woman
and wish you well....

Fight or Flight...

Living in a constant state
of "fight or flight" drains you
of all energy to create
and to appreciate the moment.

Building Bridges....

life is a raging river
full of cascading waterfalls
rushing over jagged rocks
with time polishing them smooth
emptying into calm ponds
God is the ocean
we are the tiny tributaries
working our way back to the ocean
we are flexible in spirit
yet rigid in flesh
we keep returning
to the familar
 suspension bridge
with frayed ropes 
and missing planks
instead of trusting ourselves
to venture on a new path
of the sturdy log
firm and wide...waiting....
for us to build hand rails
as we work our way across.

"The greatest gift you can give to me
is to seek me out
accept me as I am
be with me in any given moment
and listen with your heart."
