There is More Than One Way

by Tom Swift

Just as the breath is a way into to the moment so, too, are words.

To intentionally arrange words in a way so as to try to make sense of your experience is to be as present as the human brain allows one to be.

Feel your fingers form the visual manifestation of your mind.

Notice the thought that arises because of the thought that just passed — because of the thought just shaped by your having written it.

Allow the page to be what it is. Whatever it is. Blank. A jumbled mess. Something resembling beauty.

Words are a product. They are also a path.
