Reaching Agreement

Reaching Agreement

If I should stand here
and, bowing, drenched in moon mist,
in this best white light,
would I then rise up
and reach the Pure Land to sit
across from the Holy One,
see then eye to eye
and reach agreement with Him
on what will come next?

There is the possibility of argument over what is story and what just is. It is hard sometimes to draw these lines without distress. I hope that in 2013 we can settle down and just do what must be done with a minimum of argument over things. I live in many worlds. I spend many hours in corporate America, producing estimates, plans and directions that are the purview of mechanical and industrial designers. I keep reasonably current in stuff that happens at the leading edges of science, cosmology and quantum mechanics and all that. I am a poet and linguist and philosopher, have more than a smattering of psych and sosh. I was once seriously involved in astrology and I Ching, and I remain respectful of many ancient disciplines of mind and soul. What I do is dance.


  1. Oh I LOVE the moon mist photo. I don't know why something so cold always appeals to me as warm and inviting. I find that the moment I try to come to an agreement with the Holy One is the moment I find I've been spun in a direction that wasn't part of the negotiation at all! Ha.

    Happy New Year Christopher.

    1. I hope, dear one, that your new year be much more pleasant and just as useful as this last one has been. I am one of your fans. Believe it.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
