I’m sorry I have not posted for the last 5 days.
I spent my time on chess
Playing by email against 4 opponents
of two games each
I lost track of time
hours of concentration
It’s not surprising I forget
parts of the day or meals
What should a bird do
when flying over colorful meadows?
I try to visualize longitude and latitude
A ladder and a backpack
In braided places of discoveries
I will not play with thistles
Or comb my hair with my hand.
When you study, study well
When you play, play ardently
Manage your time.
All the definitions are written.
Most of the questions are answered.
We can engage in games with abandon.
Find the vocabulary for vulnerabilities,
The intersections of passion and doubt
Jazz players deep in improvisations.
Good appetite surrounds pillars of well-being
Taste compliments strength
Like when a house leans where the wind blows.
Experts say music can shape lives
Research says exercise affects the heart’s cells
And make them younger.
When shall we start moral reflection
With purpose and effort?
How shall we face the inevitable
When we can’t breath together anymore?
How do we cry
When suffering is unbearable?
Always a change in climate for discussion,
Abundant snow and excessive rain,
Storms and violent winds
Nature is not the easiest to understand
The divine has a way to confound
Even when meditation focuses on awareness.
they thought they will never learn
to dance the cha cha cha
-play like a child
to be children again
hiding in castles and search
building the cat’s cradle
might have been hours
practice, play, and laughter
bodies curl for ice cream
