The Good of Now

The Good of Now

Genesis calls me back
With a new creation invitation

Simple phrases of affirmation
Spoken by the Creator-of-the-Universe

By example, He teaches
By example, He declares
Repeats it
Because it bears repeating
If anything ever did
This does
Six times in One

Look with the simplicity of Genesis
With a Genesis ear
Hear with a Genesis heart
With every word
That ever was
and is

and shall be
to choose from
He chose good

The Word Made Flesh says it is good
now and forever more

And I am called back
In the lines and phrases, the poetry of Book One, Chapter One
into the goodness of Now
Moved by the power and majesty of
In the beginning the words
Were simple
Truth

On Being Out of Touch

These days, one of my favorite places to write is within the pages of my newly renamed monthly-ish subscriber letter—The Notebook: Pages of Mine

A sweet spot of sorts for me, The Notebook provides a different feel and format. A place where as a writer I am finding my rhythm and stride as I weave a bit of narrative, a bit of storytelling, a bit of prose. I have grown to like the way the words link arms a little differently over there.

I hear nuanced differences in the voice of my art in the letter. It is a privilege and an honor to invite you to the pages of The Notebook. I hope you’ll join me and like what you hear and read.

Join me on this journey to take note of small ordinary wonder. Peel back the obvious to notice more of the hidden. Let’s take note and become notetakers.

There is joy in writing here, always for now, at my writing home. This is home for me. But I want to invite you there too.

I have just mailed my October letter to subscribers… Here is an excerpt from my October page, taken from my notebook.

Maybe the light is always just right.

Maybe we are standing a quarter inch off of where we need to be to see.

Maybe the slant is always pouring in with just the perfect amount of glint and shadow

To show us where to cast our eyes.

Perhaps we moved at the speed of un-noticing all those years ago. And left the beauty in 

A blur.

Perhaps the Light is always just right.

Afterall.

And sacred ordinary was always waiting to have its time of quiet hallelujah, with you 

And you alone.

Maybe the Light is always just right.
