The Desert Called. I Answered.

It was a spontaneous decision. As I opened my laptop the only parameters were: 3 nights, easy flight, no car, leave the next day.

Beach? Desert? Snow? Passport? An old favorite? Some place new? In less than 15 minutes it was all booked. No research. No deliberating. I went with my intuition.

And it was sublime, in a way I haven’t felt in….ever?

Reflections from the desert.

Quiet. 
As I please.

Me.
Only me.

Books, journals
laptop. 
Untouched.

Quiet mind
Full heart.

Content. 
Yearning for more.

And not Or.

I greeted her each morn and bid her goodnight each evening.
I listened.
She whispered:

Rise. Keep going. Higher. 
Shine.
Nourish them.

And 

Bold.
Technicolor.
Never too much.
Blazing.

Leave them in awe.

Rest.
Return.
Repeat.

Like it’s the first time.

Me. 
Only me.

Quiet mind.
Full heart.

Content. 
Yearning for more.

And not Or
