3 letters. If they’re not in your life
put together like that–you
don’t have much going into your fond
It’s not the be-all & end-all but its
Just doing without enjoying is
racking up a lot of “things” while
you’re not feeling particularly happy
about it all. Joy is missing–
sometimes we forget or don’t
even know to feel what we’re
doing as enjoyment. To relax
into that. It may be there 5%
but it needs to be there 90-100%.
Not of the time–I’m talking about
the quality of experience. Deeply
felt ones are like wringing the
last bit of water out of a sponge.
Most of us have soggy sponges.
Unused joy that is in the shadows,
the wings, waiting, to color
our experience of life.
Otherwise, it’s a black & white
movie, over at the end & that’s
that. Not much to write
home about. Just another
check off the list. Your bucket
is getting empty, but it often
times doesn’t mean too much.
Fun. Is it or isn’t it?
