A Word that Awakens: Buoyant
Today, I hope to hold in mind that life is a bottomless, shoreless, surfaceless river, and all the 79-year-old ripple called ‘Hamilton Salsich’ has to do is stay loose and simply go with the flow. Buoyancy is the best gift life gives. Built into nature – all of it – is the ability to be light and to float, and that’s what I want to do today. I want to be what I truly am – an easygoing part of a stream that has no boundaries. The moments will swirl and whirl as the great river of today moves along, and I want to both float and observe and just be part of the infinite, invincible buoyancy. This majestic river, this endless here-and-now, never started and will never end. It’s a boundless stream that carries life along like a resilient, lighthearted shipment to nowhere and everywhere. Today, I hope to thoroughly enjoy the ride.
