it doesn’t take long

there are days
that it just doesn’t take long.

like today.
before 8 am –
i had felt – grateful, blue, peaceful, weary, comfortable, uncomfortable, bummed, tickled, full, empty, angry, calm.

before 8!
i posted that on facebook then went to look for an image
about the all of life to post with it.

instead, i bumped into this one.
and i actually teared up.

if i could only keep this in mind every single moment.

there’s too much stuff right now that snags me
and topples me. but when i look beyond –
to the vastness –
well, that helps a whole lot.
