masks the depth
and breadth of ability –
houses more than anticipated
room for expansion, however;
current state of disrepair –
walls buckling, wiring faulty,
and security systems failing –
compromises output.

holds a certain charm,
character well-earned,
but it would be useful
to install a mechanism
for locking out the past –
perhaps the future too –
eliciting and validating
the fullness of present.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. when you have so many memories and life experiences having a place to put them all while you process the present can be very handy, but our minds seem to be on a tilted slope most days and we slip backwards looking for the present in the past. you have an amazing ability to create stunning awareness about our purpose in life V.J – I really love reading your posts
