being here now, there then
More quiet tonight in that high field, wind through the surrounding
forest of eucalyptuses, soothing (if you need soothing), serene.
Walking back, a car with loud music passes: rhythm of voice
and sound texture a hybrid of reggae and hiphop. What intensely-practiced performance-spontaneity pop music is.
Flow of play in true spontaneity—unwitting self expression
(shameless incrimination)—bricolagic, impromptu, ad hoc truth
of presence doesn’t resort to such terms as “unwitting self expression”
or et ceterationalities.
So, you wondered how our play could have involved mine truly,
since I write like this: no tweety texting blogicality, rather as if everything is proem or serious conceptuality.
I loved you being there, however—play just flowing along happens so easily.
I choose to write deliberately. I act deliberately when that’s called for—apt.
But I’d rather play. Don’t we all feel that way.
Unfocused going with the flow is complemented by focused acting, “deep writing” (a coach specializing in creative efficacy calls it)—the Literary may be that.
The tissue of our being, cohering time, is, among other “things,” cordiality, graciousness, constancy, openness, rapport, empathy, cheerfulness, playfulness, being exactly who one seems to be,
where appearance is reality.
I feel loving friendship is born in a sense of this and knows
how to stay so.
