Ah, free time’s refreshing and spacious breeze…it’s another miracle, really!…feeling the Qi of memories of Naropa University, Boulder, Colorado flowing through my body, I try to spend my free time and my Qi… so wisely… and not all in one place…such that all…. necessary/right actions…have been taken, no bill left unpaid, my space organized and cleaned — if/when short on time and Qi, at least have my bed made, my sink emptied and clean…at least ensure my doggy and I drank water, ate, walked and played, that I talked to someone among my family and friends, even if just a short, simple text, that I listened to a Red Hot Chili Peppers song, practiced Qigong, meditated, prayed, contemplated at least something the universe said, played a sitcom so my laughter could shred up any lingering tension, and wrote at least a few words of poetry all before bed…

…Ayo, and then I try waking up early — easier said than done.

…Late afternoon, there might be a thunderstorm soon, meantime my doggy Dylan and I are communing with…the sun star,… savoring the heat, the warmth, breathing, contemplating the concept of a “dream job,” service that is a pleasure to provide…skills that are an honor and a privilege to master…the harnessing of your imagination, leveraging the wisdom you’ve gained…
