I'm thinking about the word "deep", a prompt for a poem friends have written to. I love this word. I see myself as deep, the universe as deep well of infinite energy, my connection to that energy assured. the concept of depth has always comforted me - deep stillness under water, in the forrest. I do better at the heart of things than on the surface, best closest to core, to birth and death. The shallow waters with tricky currents, everyday living is where I struggle. Deep is simple - offers fewer choices, requires only abiding.

I hear you, Victoria. I am more comfortable in the 'deep' than in the shallow. I think I can navigate the shallow better now than I could a while ago....but 'deep' is where I 'am.'
