mudra

i drive to work everyday, gazing out at the views of the river and the lake, the trees, and all i want to do is pull over and paint.

i want to be a buddhist, i want to be a yoga practitioner, i want to be a person who walks in the woods, i want to be smart and well read, i want to be a good teacher, i want to be a good mother, a good friend, a good grandmother, a good partner.

i am none of these.

my dog pushes her snout into my left ear.  then nudges me under my right arm until i reach back and touch the soft velvet of her nose.

i close my eyes, and wish to be kinder, more compassionate, more wise, more enlightened.

but I am not.

I am a pearl in the mouth of an clam, only i haven’t started to form yet.

i am just a bit of grit.
