interlude

currently falling in love with colorado on a farm west of loveland.

.

also, this happened–

“on the way to the play, we stopped to look at the stars.
and as usual,
i felt in awe.
and then i felt even deeper in awe at this capacity we have to be
in awe about something.

then i became even more awestruck
at the thought that i was,
in some small way,
a part of that
which i was so in awe about.

and this feeling went on
and on
and on…
my space chums got a word for it:
‘awe infinitum.’

because at the point you can comprehend how
incomprehensible it all is,
you’re about as smart as you need to be.

suddenly i burst into song:
‘awe,
sweet mystery of life,
at last i’ve found thee.’

and i felt so good inside
and my heart felt so full,

i decided i would set time aside each day to do
awe-robics.

because at the moment you are most in awe of all there is
about life that you don’t understand,
you are closer to understanding it all
than at any other time.”
