As alive as possible

We save the world by being alive*
Joseph Campbell

I write when the spirit moves me, and the spirit moves me every day.**
William Faulkner

Following on from yesterday’s thoughts on being infused
leading to doing some infusing,
And alhough I am getting older and crumbly,
I am yet noticing more and more how each day provides me with
the possibility of being more alive
for me to pluck or ignore.

I want to unfold. I don’t want to stay folded anymore, because where I am folded, there I am a lie.^
