open again

yes, open again
and remember
that going back to the beginning
isn't always an end
and that home isn't always a destination
as much as it is a state of mind

seek the quiet

yes, seek the quiet
and know
that standing in the crowd
isn't always a bad thing
and that life isn't always silent
as much as it is peaceful

I needed to read this, Sven... I've found the quiet recently.  It's difficult for me to appreciate it as being that, peacefulness, as you say... and I needed a little reminder of it.

I think I'll go for a walk sometime later today... I could use that.  Maybe go read in a park or something.

I admire your optimism, as always...   Very nicely written, Sven.  You expressed this well.

I am glad to read this kind of poem from you my friend. I remember a time when all was turbulent, not only for you but for me as well. It is funny how life has it's cycles and how we come to accept and find peace, even after a very rocky road.

like these lines Sven... sometimes hard to remember these things but always worth trying to.

wow, a philosophical write from you, Sir Sven..i sure enjoyed putting my little grey cells to work, trying to derive interpretations from your lines

and that home isn't always a destination
as much as it is a state of mind

this is going to my library on the strength of these two profound beautiful lines
