Who am I

What am I?

The face in the mirror

Yes, I’m me, the body,

Ben

But I watch the body.

I watch fingers tapping at the keyboard

I make them move

They belong to me

I can see thoughts too,

They create swirls of feelings like ice cream cones

Trains move through the station of this head that I can feel and I’m the only passenger on the platform.

 

So I’m the passenger and there’s no one around when I really look. When I look from Me,

This floating eye moving through the landscape of dimensions that I once knew and that I could one day come to

 

Yeah

 

Possibly I’m just depressed and longing for the answer to the questions that could serve me to my sustenance

but I believe in curiosity and the fruits of persistence

When falling from the path of the heart, I throw a line and hope it finds it’s destination

Book of the Day #1: The Alchemist

IMG_0459.jpg

The book that made Paulo Coelho a household name, ‘The Alchemist’ is a truly rare piece of literature.
Following the journey of the young Shepherd Santiago as he follows his intuition, we traverse across Andalusia discovering and learning from the some of the most simple, yet the most profound lessons that life has to offer.
From the perspective of a boy, we relearn that which we have all forgotten – To follow our hearts.

Not only is this book a beautiful piece of poetic fiction with a touching story, it is a book that we can all learn from, and revisit to remind ourselves of the simple truths of feeling, observation, and curiosity.
…We can all learn from the Sheep and the Sand…
Give it a read if you are wandering, like Santiago.
