my reader janice reminds me of ovid's famous quote:
Let your hook be always cast.
In the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.
expectation kills the arrival of what is necessary. and so openness, availability, receptivity, are conditions to embrace in ourselves to allow the long present now to unfold as it is intended. musicians, artists, actors, poets, teachers, accountants, carpenters, students - all of us - are all subject to a set of prescriptive assumptions that delimit our work practically and spiritually. to step outside of expectation is to allow what is to be, to unfold. it's that simple. it's that difficult.
by the same token, dangling bait of any kind in the pool of existence without expectation - being prepared in some way to be without expectation - allows us to be available to the benevolent presence of the creation.
