From the road way
the view of a rail way.
Train cars pulled along at a pace.
Each on their own way
each in their own time.
They remind me
how quickly
an hour
a day
a week
a month
a year
a decade
a life
goes by
like the trains that go by

Something about the contours of wood
before and after focused attention with a tool

Something about the contours of body
before and after a massage therapy session

I am amazed by tree body
I am awed by human body

Mt Baldy is known to shift 4 feet each year.

and to watch the seeds fly
is a practice I am glad to sha...

Each are full of life layers
Photographed on a stain layered wood floor
I got to participate with beyond removing carpet.
Each stage of the floor process I remember.

Transformation is sometimes spoken of as a kind of magical process.

The work of ants
is persistent.
Little by little
they build their homes
We see
something of their work
from the surface.

The interior work
to which each of us is invited
is persistent.
Little by little
we walk the paths that turn to home
and remake home.

In my experience massage therapy

Well I and others don't exactly seem like flowers to me
and yet some times
seem more about blooming
than other times.

Always amidst something that has been
something that is past
