Advice for

Busy. Busy. Busy.
Oh isn't this fun?

Got ta keep the motor moving –
Fearing silence means all iz done.

Moving without reflection
frantically rushing about,

How tempting it is ta believe
the entire world will shatter

& that our tiny mission
is all that matters.
Advice for Busy Motorists by T Newfields

Busy Motorists

Well, how about doing nothing
& jes parking fer a while?

That's right, take yer keys
out ah dah damn ignition:
end yer obsession with speed.

Let yer engine cool off
wipe dah windshield clean.

Disengage from time ta time:
& notice what's ignored
err unseen.

Is yer mission
ta rush frum X to Y
az fast az pissible,
err become mure aware
& breathe?

Focal Point - an art work by T Newfields
Ron: Disengage the engine. How do we do that?
Lex: Isn't that what meditation is about?
Lis: Maybe the opposite is true. Aren't our core values too disengaged already? Perhaps a deeper level of engagement is needed.
Linda: Well, as the poem suggests, relax and breathe. Only from a point of clarity can we begin to know what's needed.
