Working Lightly


As the dancer twirls, as the tinker taps,
As the torch guides, as truth reveals

As the sun warms, brightens and awakens
As the stars sparkle and the sparks ignite

As a child skips, rolls and tumbles.

Let me live my work like that.
Let me learn to work lightly.

Working lightly is not a burden. Nor is it working little, small or barely. It is full immersion in that which brings life and brings you to life. Playful. Nimble. Agile. Not half-heartedly, perhaps light-heartedly. In a rhythm that sustains, renews, refreshes and satisfies.

These are some thoughts I’ve been pondering lately. Very much a work in progress, but I’d love to know what you think.
