2012. it is here. FINALLY!!!!!!!
It has ended my winter of discontent, severed my endless contract with dark and dingey taking me on to light and newness. One last evening in our house alone with my beloved, cleaning out, reviewing and discarding the superfluous in the search for less.. my selfgiven motto: less is more.The thoughts of the last months often keeping me from sleep are best described by lyrics from dear Faithless in their song:
I want more
“A bum could rummage through ya bin
And live like a king
On just one crumb o’ya cake
N’ya say ya life needs fulfilling
Some would give anything to live like you
Shame your mind, don’t shine
Like your possessions do.
Whining, complaining all the time,
Don’t see no rain on you
What side your bread is buttered on
If only you knew
What d’ya mean
I want more”
I want less: less possesions, less worries, less frustration
I want more: more happiness with simple things, more time spent in speaking and listening rather than watching, more statisfaction with what I have, more light, lightness, patience, understanding and tolerance.
Faithless rightly says:
“Friend what is it that you seek
What is it that you try to find
Someday I hope you realized
It shined in you all the time.
Hills to climb, sights to see, seas to cross,
Friends to make, hands to shake, the world is yours,
Foods to taste, sounds to hear, love to feel,
Seeds to sew, things to know, fish to reel,
Space to quiz, stones to lift, life’s a gift”
Thank you Faithless, may I follow the path of your wise words and welcome 2012…. bring it on!!!
