Everything changes in a second

A phone call at 11am.
At 9pm board a flight from Melbourne to Darwin.

A full week planned,
Everything is cancelled or covered.

A weekend in Daylesford,
changed to a week (or so) in Darwin.

Things that really matter,
Suddenly are in perspective.

Amazement happens at the thought of preparation,
Of life working together towards this moment.

God is known deeply,
Shock is real.

Aloneness feels good and precious mostly,
with moments of longing for others.

Don't know what moments the days ahead will bring,
But comfort in the preciousness of each moment.

In a second, a conversation, a moment,
life changes.

I am testing posting via email.

Quotes from Rohr

I love these quotes from Richard Rohr:
“Everything circles around what you do with your pain. If you don’t transform it, you’ll transmit it.” 
“Without an encounter of real transformation, idolatry is inevitable.” 
which was on this blog.

More Time?

I like this post by Seth Goddin.
Why not make that decision rather than waiting - more time will probably only create anxiety not a better decision.
