My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

January 25, 2011 “simple as that”



“simple as that”


when the chains fall away

and the blinders

the dust is settled

the slate is cleaned

and stark revelation

is realized

when only one thing

is the only thing

that matters

a single point

is the point

that points the way

when there is no question

that the answer is unquestionable

simplification becomes simple

simply one

only one


there is no


because there is

nothing else










fall back

plan B




only a singularity

in a velvet room

with a window

facing eternity…

simple as that

    Simple, yet so beautifully said! But you never know, there might be something more than that window in the eternity … have faith!
