We’ll never be there again

//We’ll never be there again

We’ll never be there again

Back now from retreat.
Return after a week away to find the city relaxed, moving step by step, unbound.
Recall the mist on the green morning hills outside my window before a first sitting. Night had been filled with fitful sleep. I drank it all, then turned to dress.
The entire week was like that: Deliciously bittersweet, arriving and moving on.
None of us will ever be there (or here) again.

    the unbearable lightness of just being

    seeing the same mist in the hills in the morning
    through different eyes
    driving in a car through the wide open landscape – hearing the zooming of the car and Mozarts pianoconcerto and voices talking about things
    who are we?
