Re-treat, Re-immersion, Re-al

 I have had my dream--like others-- 
and it has come to nothing, so that 

I remain now carelessly 
with feet planted on the ground 
and look up at the sky-- 

feeling my clothes about me, 
the weight of my body in my shoes, 
the rim of my hat, air passing in and out 
at my nose
--and decide to dream no more. 
~William Carlos Williams

I will still envision possibilities, yet be alive in the real moment of what truly is my life. You are what you do, what you choose in each moment. It does not define you, but it does create the life you will experience.
