...11.14.10...

some days...
you might feel...
stuck.



no mirror ever became iron again;
no bread ever became wheat;
no ripened grape ever became sour fruit.
mature yourself and be secure from a change for the worse.
become the light.
Rumi

you have choices.
they are not always easy.
but you have choices.
and if you are stuck...
use it as a learning opportunity.
don't stay there.
grow from it.
choose your own path.
what would it look like?
you have the power within.
where does the power come from?
find your starting point.
music?
music transforms me.
this
leading up to 3:05 in the video
seems like the stuck.
chaos, noise, crazy.
then 3:05 to 4:24
it starts slowly and builds.
and at the end.
i recognize that strength from within.
i can
become the light.
the music is all around us...
all you have to do is listen.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.
robin.
