Follow your bliss


You have to learn to recognise your own depth. If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.                 Joseph Campbell

Love’ s Camel


Whatever way loves camel takes

let it take me too

stowed up on the saddle, swaying.

Let that be home.


The past nor future is our own

only this trapeze moment.

Catch it now as it swings.

Who cares where we are headed


it is enough to be with

this light filled present;

feel the sway, the night air on your face

stars bright in your hair.
