...as we do the mad dash
to the end of the first month of 2015
let us not forget that not all needs to be a mad dash...
IT MUST BE
It must be we are waiting for the perfect moment.
It must be under all the struggle we want to go on.
It must be, that deep down,
we are creatures getting ready for when we are needed.
It must be that waiting for the listening ear or the appreciative word,
or the right woman or the right man
or the right moment just to ourselves,
we are getting ready just to be ready and nothing else.
Like this moment just before the guests arrive
working alone in the kitchen
sensing a deep down symmetry in every blessed thing.
The way that everything unbeknownst to us
is preparing to meet us too.
Just on the other side of the door
someone is about to knock
and our life is just about to change
and finally after all these years rehearsing,
behind the curtain,
we might just be ready to go on.
