The setup

Transience turns everything to air. You look behind and see no sign even of a yesterday that was so intense. Yet in truth, nothing ever disappears, nothing is lost. Everything that happens to us in the world passes into us. It all becomes part of the inner temple of the soul and it can never be lost.*
John O’Donohue

We’re all infused.
Some more intentionally:
Being as open as possible
to as much as possible

When we look more closely to see what all that infusing makes
And are as open as possible to as much as possible of what we find,
And this for a long as possible,
We are ready to do some infusing.

The last time we took action on an idea, extended ourselves for a friend, and perhaps encouraged ourselves for a new project – these happened because the story worked.^

Which all leads on to what I want to share tomorrow …
