There are too many things to think about
There are too many ways I dream to be

-Michael Bruner, Cartoons Are My Life

Have I turned the power off and back on?
Focus returning.
Full moon.
Boneless pizza?
Skipping students.
Long bus rides and longer waits.
Several days to the weekend.
Intellectual resting.
To think…


“Buried to a point of absurdity in my work.” Jimmy Iovine

Explore wild options
After all, bees surely fly.
Learning is not time.

“What did you think about?”

I thought about that question
The better answer being,
“I don’t know.”

Minutes, hours, laps
Who knows what I thought about while running.
Breathe, relax, slow down
Were the only regular thoughts I remember.

Somewhere I heard about an ultra marathoner
Who meditates while he runs.
It would have been cool to believe that’s what I was doing
Since I have nothing better to claim about my mental state while running.

Maybe that is life
Better not to think,
To just go on being.

“Hold fast, then, to this sound and wholesome rule of life-that you indulge the body only so far as is needful for good health.” Seneca

Organic living
More than grocery shopping
Clarity of life

“Find an independence where action becomes action that supports the whole action that includes everything and does everything that is needed.” (Presence, by C. Otto Scharmer, Peter M. Senge, Joseph Jaworski, Betty Sue Flowers)

Needles deliver
Receptors take all they can
Souls float absently
Solutions will be complex
Thinking must be inclusive
