Ruffle and Roll


Emma and I like to just look around at stuff.

For example- tonight on the plaza I counted 23 people looking at screens at one time.

I felt lonely.

Emma didn’t care ’cause her olfactory prowess was on high intensity overload; pigeons, old pizza, some lady wearing formidable perfume, dope, dogs, pre-rain, children’s bath soap.

I like to think about nothing.

Just look. Feel. Sense.

It seems like enough.

Plenty, in fact.

I become porous as we sit there and let things just ruffle and roll through me;

Still doing all the stuff I do like get judgey, appreciative, grateful, repulsed, inspired….

All my things are there but so much smaller than the emptiness holding them.

Everything is so INTERESTING from this vantage point.

Em and I were lookin’ ’round and this lovely woman came over to tell us she thought we looked great and asked to take our picture (above).

I liked her.

Her energy was grounded, clean, curious but contained.

Someone I didn’t feel the need to put up energy shields around.

When I allow emptiness inside I can feel all sorts of stuff I wouldn’t otherwise.

Ruffling and rolling through me………………
