What can be done now
Is more important than what
Problem blocks the path
n.b. I am at a point where hacking through the jungle of life seems very challenging. At times every day seems both too long, as solutions to long-running problems seem to move so slowly, and yet everyday also seems too short to do all that needs doing. I sense that this current period of struggle has dulled my writing.
Being able to spend a little time each day meditating as I write is very helpful. I also thank you for reading my thoughts here. It fascinates me to see which countries each reader is in at the time of reading. I would love to visit everyone and learn about how the world looks from where you are.
In the above haiku I have succeeded in running the words at the start and end of each line into two phrases that relate to the idea of the haiku, or motto, or philosophical point that I am trying to make.
If anyone can convert this prosaic piece of self-help into something more poetic I would be very grateful.
As I write it starts to rain very heavily. It is cold, the raindrops large. Traffic is swishing along the nearby road, but now the blackbird starts to sing, so often the first song of morning – a quite delightful song.
I wish you all a good day.
