a stopping place

Georgetown Island, ME. Waterman Trail. Back River. 02.08.19.




We need stopping places

where we relax and rest

where we realize anew how easily

we get lost in doing


To stop is not merely a physical act

but an invitation to inner stillness

sensing nothing needs to be done

to be anything or to prove anything


for we are always, already

that we are


Stopping places remind us

who we are

before we do anything


We relearn

through this grace of restfulness

our natural essence of fulfillment




that we are not human doings

we are beings being with all other beings

in a communion

timeless and fathomless


When this aloneness inwardly is

welcomed, we welcome

our place in Life with all other beings


We find

even apart from, we cannot be separate from, so

in being alone, we discover the joy of all being al-one
