There are times that slice one into almost desperation:
try to sort a perfect phone contract is one case
ed reflection, for this morning at
least the man I should’ve been; confused and be-
mused by the people who lead me.
And sometimes a question too far
becomes a quest too far.
And I realise this morning spent chasing down data,
I must change what I some-
times do: yes, there are
moments for data, but there are also more
important moments when to go with a person in
the pleasure of the second, no second-guessing
the future, just living an unending present,
is far more significant than getting it right.
For getting it right is not optimisation;
for getting it right is love above all;
for getting it right is the kindness of attraction
when we lose ourselves in the tic-
tiled love and touch of
another, and care so very little that simplicity
And just because we are predictable in
everything we do and deny
does not mean that simplicity says we are simple.
We are not.
We are complex beings with extraordinary minds:
and I am happy to include myself and more,
than prepared to include yous, my loves.
My extraordinary mind is easily distracted
from love: your extraordinary minds, meanwhile,
know exactly how to let love
bathe you in its
And that is why I admire everyone who knows
how to let go.
And that is why I want to learn how to let go,
just as well.
