I’m A Little Mental. Yeah.

“Sanity is a cozy lie.”  ~ Susan Sontag

NERVES!  I’m a little mental.  Yeah.  Carrying the weight of the world.  Carrying my own weight, which is heavy enough.  I find myself dangerously wide open.  The nervous system in my body feels infinite.  As does my ancestral lineage.   And yours.  And the next persons.  Immeasurable energy that goes on and on connecting me back, back, back into the future.   Get out of my head and into my heart!  Standing in Tadasana and raise my arms straight up to greet it.  Reach it.  My nerves on fire, humming with the force of it all.  The nervous system of all of Creation.

PULL BACK!  Every cell of me snaps back.  Safe in my skin.  Heart beating.  Blood pumping.  A sly uninvited smile creeps welcome onto my face growing more broad with each passing second until it can grow no wider lest it become peals of wild nervous laughter.   I let go – howl with hysteria!!

Crazy times.  These are crazy time.  These are crazy times.  Crazy.

 “I plan to win by losing only
Every time but one”                                                                                                                                                                                   ~ Excerpt from Another Poem, Geoffrey G. O’Brien

Light the fire.  Burn the sage.  Stand back and go with your nerves they said.  I said.  You said.  Who said?  And dream a BIG little dream.  “The future’s so bright I gotta wear shades.”
