FOR SALE

Organic kale, a cute Cape Cod, candles, ferry rides, CDs, DVDs, kites, Island Fudge.

None of these have I for sale.

No pipe dream, no dare to dream, no Just Say No or the latest of the best: Just Say Yes.      No marketing scheme, donor wall, hidden agenda, theater tickets, attitude adjuster, happy pill, or pleasure potion.

None of these can you buy in the marketplace of my heart                                                      where the only product is presence.                                                                                                                                                                                    I am here.  You are here.    I hear you. You hear me.   You be.   I  be.

We look, listen, and mine our feelings while we build connection–                                        a wonder that cannot be bought.

  2. So very right
