    Can I just sit here?
    In this open field...
    watching the ballet of butterflies
    doing the joyous dance
    of non-attachment?

    Can I just sit here?
    In this quiet room..
    all aglow
    with the candle's warmth
    and vanish in all denial
    of all things electronic?

    Can I just sit here?
    Next to this blue lake?
    And learn it's valuable secrets
    of stillness and motion?
    Smooth surface
    but swift undercurrent...
    Like waves created
    from one tiny leaf...

    Can I just sit here...
    in the cool green backwoods...
    to learn the lessons of
    unity and diversity
    in the midst of
    a multitude of creatures...?

    Can I just sit here....
    without appointments,
    and expectations,
    without the pressure of
    counting and anticipating
    every single minute....?

    Can I just sit here...
    To align with a solitude
    Of my own design?

    I thank you all...for sharing a vision. Sometimes, we just need to fall back a little.
