I CANNOT RESIST IT!
Laying there in front of me, it is almost forcing itself upon me. «Take me with you. Your place is my place. Do not leave me here. I am outstanding, and I would love to shine – for YOU» How can anybody resist an «offer» like that? I cannot. Discretely I will carry it close to my body, like a baby. Back home it will be part of my collection, my treasures collected from various places. Every now and then I will stroke it to feel its surface, even sit on it when the sun has been up and it is warm and beautiful.
Earlier we could pick stones wherever we wanted in the nature. Not so any more. I have to buy them by kilo – if I do not follow my «instincts».
My garden has a variety of stones. In addition to my handpicked beauties there are colorful pebbles from the river Rhine – bought in big bags containing 1000 kilos each and sent by post! The pebbles are small, and when we walk on them they mumble, unfolding their rich story to the ones willing to listen.
I often lay on my back listening to them, feeling how the stones are comforting my back – giving me a lovely massage when I practice my exercises. This is actually my exercise mat.
Laying there I can watch the clouds passing over me. I see birds floating in the wind, and sometimes I cannot resist tickling a cloud with my bare feet. Warmly recommended!!
Soon reality turns literally upside down. What was up comes down and vice versa, and I am on my way! I am Ellypropelly – the Skywalker. I am dancing on clouds, flying where the wind is taking me!
All the stars, invisible in daylight, are under my feet. A war up here? Never heard of it, or maybe…there was this guy, Luke I think he called himself, he mentioned something…
