My head full of another world,
I march through this one, unpresent.
This earth waits upon me.
These beings call out to me.
How can I come to them?
How can I not?
There is no other way than to slow down.
Let gratitude catch up to me.
Let humility overtake me.
Let wonder stop me in my tracks.
See what I see.
Hear what I hear.
This world opens itself into me.
Now I am ready to live this day.
