I want to be near the safe part. The place by the fire where the embers aren’t blowing. The seat at the party where the sweet conversation is flowing. I want to be up on the bluff, looking down at the ocean. That peaceful section of the trail where I can hear my heart beat. I want to drown myself in simple tasks.
In the early morning, when it seems the whole world is still sleeping, I want to take my arms and bring that peacefulness into me and then I want to converse with silence. Alone and tempered, I want to make my way through my day following my own slow cadence, following my own deliberate metronome of calm.
