The Knowing.

Fay Slimm.



The Knowing.


How inspiring it is to be

right in the moment.

To know there is something

beyond the knowing.

To feel the theatre of life's

momentous journey.

To stand still in the centre

of earth's slow turning.


How good to be here as old

ends and new year unrolls.

        Beautifully written, Fay. We should stop more often to smell the roses.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Ah - - I truly agree with your inspiring addition to the small verse - stopping to pick daisies or to smell roses is all we ever need for an uplift - thanking you ever so much Fred.

              Ahaha, well now I'm thinking a spirit of spontaneity and a soul of synchronicity transpire with me unknowing!
