and as I prepare to say adios, I look up toward the heavens and send a silent prayer of acknowledgement for the events which have transpired in my life in the past 12 calendar months.

I think of my place on this planet Earth and of Earth’s place in this humungo universe and I am, indeed, humbled. A life time surely passes in the blink of an eye when viewed through the lense of eons of time and space.

And so I take a minute, a fleeting second, to sit still.

allowing thoughts to spin

where they will


they are all

spun out.

sit still

until I can


the earth on which I exist

spin slightly

ever so

slightly off kilter. and it is in this moment that I

connect to this plane.
