My Bundle



Photo: Tsoko.nut - SM Mall - Makati City
It's the 3rd today and I have yet to possess a full moment to myself. A moment to just sit still and ponder and write and muse and plan and think ahead to the coming days. A moment that is..blank...bereft of anything to do.


Rush courses through my bloodstream. Intoxicating and heady it propels my mind to chitter chatter endlessly...a cacophony of whispers hissing "it's the 3rd...it's the 3rd...hurry!"

"Hurry towards what..for what..what about?" I bemusedly try to answer back.

"There are things to do and things to do and things to do.." this phantom somewhere inside me rumbles. Days slip through our fingers like sand...

Tomorrow I will deal with these shadow voices. They need to be reassured and calmed. A mug of my favorite chocolate...a private corner in the choc shop...a notebook...and quiet...

Right now I purpose to deal with this bundle of "rush" in my hands.

Very nice to see you hit the "Pause" button there, Lexie. (Great writing; I could feel the urgency tugging at you.) You've been so busy during the holidays, it's good to see you release and feel free to very ... simply ... be.

You really are a great writer, Luxie! For everything there is a season...a time to rush and feel the creative energy of purpose, and a time to slow down and savor the moment. You always seem so aware of where you're at...I admire that! As for me, I need to get off my duff and steal some of your energy and get my dang Christmas tree down!

Rose: Nice to see you. Thank you for the compliment. To simply be..oh' yes..that can be such a luxury at times but I'm taking it.

Amber: Thanks Amber. I took the lights down just a moment ago.

I like what you said..." creative energy of purpose"..I think I will live with this thought from here on :>
