Be Where You Are

We went, my self and whoever

walks with me into the forest

of ideas and thought.

It would almost be better to leave

them at home

and just be where I was with

my body as well as my mind.

My senses have plenty to do.

My mind could very well

take a well-earned vacation.

Things pop up when they’re

ready to be solved, acted

upon.  No real need for a

formal battle plan.

You miss the whole walk

when your mind is ELSEWHERE,

usually at spots you may

not even desire to be and

which are forever in motion

until you arrive at the time

and place of your rendezvous.

So, a plan is old after the

moment of its conception.

Better to be open to changed

conditions and ready to

improvise effective solutions

based on your wits, not

your preparation.

A little prep, but then

let’s see what’s there

once you arrive.
