The key to enlightenment

Here are some of the important things I’ve learned:

Shut up and write

Let people off the hook


Breathe

Do what you want to do and not what you don't want to do

Pray


Wait

Breathe


Life presides in each present moment, not the future or the past… the whisking wind, pattering rain and waves crashing repeatedly on the shore – as well as – the annoying co-worker, bumper-to-bumper traffic and long lines at the check out.

Life happens outside of our heads, not all up in the folds of our craniums like a deeply rooted wedgie.

We are nothing but this moment, and then a few more fleeting moments and a few more after that. 



Keep writing. It saves lives.
