how things work… well

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward.
When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.
~  Karl A. Menninger

The nature of just how things work
in a person,
in a

of one who battles uncertainties
one who will
for a couple of months
before finally making a call

and yet
find oneself met
by the very kindness of someone who answers
who will ask, who will then
and respond
with very sincere compassion and

who will set for you
a phone appointment for that very afternoon
as to not have you wait another
to breathe

as well, a slightly entertained but always caring husband
who will
cheer a bit for progress
but also
as to why you must now mostly pace
preparing yourself
until a phone rings that you must answer
as scheduled

yet who will also, spend a few extra minutes
before he has to leave
in peals of laughter
(his own kind of magic, passing of time)
and this of course
the best
kind of medicine

and here again
three of my very favourite things
expanding with


simple, simple things
that make right

the world

May you my friends, find yourselves surrounded in this ♥
