DO NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT ANYTHING IMPORTANT OR URGENT UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE A MEETING, LYNNE.
Not cancelling the internet or getting a cleaner or working out the mobile phone or paying rent on the shack. NOTHING till after a meeting.
DO NOT FREAK OUT ABOUT THE LOST OR MISPLACED KEYS OR THE BATTERY RECHARGER.
MEETING FIRST. MEETING FIRST. MEETING FIRST.
ROBERT GRAY – A DAY AT BELLINGEN
A Day at Bellingen
I come rowing back on the mauve creek, and there’s a
among the shabby trees,
above the scratchy swamp oaks
and through the wrecked houses of the paperbarks;
a half moon
drifting up beside me like a jelly fish.
Now the reflected water becomes, momentarily, white—
have paused, held in their hailing
and the long water is a dove-grey rippled sand.
A dark bird hurries
low in a straight line silently overhead.
The navy-blue air, with faint underlighting;
Has gauze veil hung up within it, or a moist fresh
I land in the bottom of an empty paddock,
at a dark palisade
(Gray 1998, 126)
Time for Joy – Book – Quote
Today I am developing a world of peace for myself, both inside and out.
Today I know I am always only one breath away from peace, one prayer away from serenity.
