Listen

Listen, please listen. You cannot hear my voice; I have none beyond the squelch and repetition that serve as memory. But think back: remember my eyes, my irregular climates, oh, how daring, and oh, how timid, so full of fear and fuck-it, by the drink and the contradictions. You will hear my voice if you listen, if you disregard the inconsequential noise that chokes your ears. If you truly knew, you would tell apart my voice by my pulse points and the wash of gray light upon my lips.

Listen, please listen, and I will be all that you hear.

      2. It is hard, I know what you mean. I can’t seem to get more than a paragraph or two out. I’ve been reading your ‘findingtrish’ blog without commenting because I don’t want to distract you. It must be very difficult to be so forthcoming. But I am reading and cheering and mourning alongside you. It’s powerful reading, so I can’t imagine how you can parse it all down in sentence form. Frankly, it amazes me and I am cheering you on to continue. 🙂

      3. A few health concerns, some chronic pain, creatively disillusioned… typical for my age, I guess. I probably worry more than I should, so I’m seeing the doc on Wednesday to sort things out. I’m hanging in there is what I’m saying. 🙂

      5. I’m sure my worrying about it does manifest it more. Early morning is my time to meditate, regardless of my work schedule. What’s involved with reiki? I just did a brief google on it, and it sounds positive.

      6. Wonderful! Somehow I knew you would lol…And it IS positive!!! I’m a Reiki Master and distant healing is something I do for many people. It simply involves me drawing the healing symbol over something that represents YOU…a picture, which if you still have on your blog I will download? or I can use the icon you use here on WP or even the cover of one of your books. As long as it’s something that “belongs” to you. Then, I simply sit quietly, place all my energy on the thing representative of you…draw the healing symbol over the thing and say it’s name 3 times…which in this case would be “hon sha ze sho nen”… then say your name 3 times as well while focusing on the thing representative of you. Then I ask that Reiki be sent you and that it go wherever it needs to be for healing. I’ll stay in that space anywhere from 5 – 15 minutes or until I feel that I have completed the session. It’s a beautiful practice and many feel relief afterwards. You don’t have to be a believer, but having an open mind helps a lot! 😉 I’m not usually an early riser, but we don’t need to be in sync for this to work. You just have to open to it. Sound good?

      7. Yes. That is all you need to do, Steven. Be open and accepting. The universe will do the rest, with a little help from me 😉 I will send this healing this evening…most likely around 8…while I am alone and undisturbed. A rare occurrence in my household lol. So do I have your permission? I need to ask 🙂
