“just live”


Before undertaking any project, assuming any stance, fulfilling any purpose, we are called upon to abide ourselves, to do what we do, to “just live,” and in simple presence to life learn to expect nothing out of anything and everything out of nothing. ~James Finley



Primed to look for happiness
on a golden platter
in some elaborately
appointed banquet hall
we tend to miss
the significance
of the simple
spice and garnish
gracing our days
of ordinary presence
and engagement.
