Everything is practice.

Everything is desire.

My practice is the same as my existence.

My existence is the same as my desire to practice.

I move in parallel lines yet sometimes desire means to cross them;

To communicate with forces that propel me toward more practice.

A trail remains as energy--

always patterned lapses of time,

sometimes documented in spaces like this one.

If I wished to stop practicing,

if my desire ever ceased to exist,

I believe I would too.

So, as a pulse pushes forward,

Everything as practice.

Everything as desire.

thank you for being here :)
