What practice is about

It is about awakening to the reality of your life, and the courage needed to live it, to really live it and not stand around procrastinating a million easy things and waiting for a poem to hit you.

It is about running through pain. I wrote this poem so many years ago I can't remember, and it just came back to me.

Running through Pain
My therapist dreams about shopping for tuna.
She wants me to take up running, to learn
to run from no one to nowhere, then
to run back home again.

  1. Lovely. I've always found that moving through (physical) pain is the best way to deal with it but I still don't want to do it... Same for other pain. Being human is something isn't it?
