  1. To “not be there” (to be without a “where”) sounds blissful … but wouldn’t that preclude learning? Perhaps learning is over-valued by those having achieved “perfection”?

    Intriguing ponder, coupled with unfolding rose petals (unfolding knowing through experience of “being”) … Thanks for stirring my thoughts!

      1. Oh, thank you! A site to revisit, for sure. I’m caught in the intrigue of being part of something infinitely larger than I can grasp. And that is indeed OK … “capacity to enjoy whatever is unfolding” is the goal.
