I text Rachel.

“What’s this month’s challenge? 😉 I’m renewing to post every day.”

“A moment to meditate,” she says,

“Ripeness, summer spirit, to come.”

She found it for me. Tis below.

As always, gracias Rachel.

Day 1, 30-day #candleflame challenge.

“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./

Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.”


Fourth set, breathing heavy but in the zone.



Back in the gym.

Why do I often finish stronger than when I start.

Momentum, baby.

When you have it you know.

When you don’t you are doubly aware.


A teeny tiny thorn/thought

Can throw off your momentum.

Your consistency.


A routine.

In every waking moment you have

everything you are and have done

with you.

It walks with you

inside your skin.


and ideas

both sparked

and waiting for the light.

I watch people all the time

I look for momentum.

The burning path

That guides them forth

when they are on a roll.

Sometimes there are curves

and bumps.

But we all have it.


This hurling ourselves to

The next moment

The next day.


Stopping for a moment.

To wind up the spring.

Is a good thing.

I’m taking the time to do that

To wind up

To renew

To refresh

Ensuring no complete derailment.

No retracing.

Forward motion.

Gaining strength and force

By a string of events.

My string of repents.




And lovely deadlifts.
