on the subject of handles

i've been having lots of
dreams again

i'm running around in most of them

racing against some unseen
(time ticking away)

unable to get a handle
on whatever
needs getting a handle on

imagine that!

so i tell myself this morning,
be the handle
instead of trying to grab hold
of it

"It was one thing to make a mistake.  It was another thing to keep making it."
                 ~Jodi Piccoult, Handle With Care

Dear Lord,
  Thank you for putting up with my frantic efforts to control the world.  How very silly of me to even try. Today i'll practice being the handle in YOUR hands.  Amen
