Been Here Before

A  L  O  H  A !

The storm has broken.
Good feelings are returning.

They always do.

The tumult of upending
our lives is calming into
discovery & routine as 
Spring Succeeds Winter.

I have seen this before,
how fear yeilds to tension
-and back again-

Like a changing sky

Then an angel of calm
whispers good sense
in my ear. This time I
will listen and relent;

Hyper-vigilance gives way

to reverie and healing.

Approaching Golden Blogger Isle, Calif

Strong enough to
leave one identity behind
and just be another face
for a while.

Here is where I come to
find the thread of sense
through it all. 

I am nobody.
Are You nobody too?
Together we are the
Real Essential Somebodies
of the World at This Time
in all of our multiplicity
of places. I see you in
Perth, Mumbai, SO Cal,
Ottawa, Texas
Kuala Lumpur.

I see you.

And I thank you.

Together we bump
bump down the funny
stairs of life.

Thanks for being a 

It means a Lot-
              Fondly, cloudia
