When things fall apart at the seems are when I laugh
at how fragile it all is to begin with.
A life of blocks upon shaky ground.
Which has always inspired me
to stack stones atop stones.
In the midst of the anxious stress and sure demise
there is a serenity like no other
Stacking stones, is the most calming action I have ever taken part in
and I will surely use this glorious practice on others one day.
Try it if you have never
but don’t over think.
The stones will inevitably fall,
not right away.
Maybe not for a long time.
But something will cause them to fall,
outside forces that you cannot control
and it will be ok
because they are stones.
And it’s all the same to the stone,
stacked or misplaced and fallen
The stone will still be a stone,
there for you to stack
and push down to start over if you’d like.
Just a simple, beautiful task
that life has gifted us with.
When things are coming apart at the seems, I wish my clothes fit me a little bit better, some a little snugger, others a tad looser.
But that’s not a dilemma, just a minor concern.
I wish we were all happy and content and not stressed, right at this moment.
My talk out loud when I type sometimes, and my cat always stops what he’s doing to listen to me talk, and it’s really reassuring to me and humbling and I’m glad that he cares enough to stop what he’s doing to hear me out.
