Nostalgia, You’re A Hard One To Keep at Bay

Please allow this indulgence. Our trip to Pittenween Arts Festival in 2010 was sublime, for many reasons. In particular, meeting old friends, and making new friends; it is a trip I would certainly recommend:

Be I

I have
Or given the choice, I would have
Perhaps to start here again
Start all over with these words

I wish
Given that I could give you a wish
I would wish
That you might show generosity

Be generous to yourself
In the morning – the early morning
Bathe in your generosity
Let it pour over and from you

Throughout the day let your gentle wealth escape

Be served from your store
Be recovered from your loft
Be loaded from your barn

Be sung from your cloisters
Be gathered from your fields
Be removed from yourself

Most days I would try to write a poem; it is a practice, as I suppose is meditation, or smiling, or watching the world go by.
