|"Transformation is getting to see as a possibility who you might be really." ...|
Preparing this way is a lesson I've learned well. Once a few years ago when we had dinner together, I ran out of things to create / generate / say. Literally. Dried up. He picked up on it immediately, and was patiently accepting. But for myself, I won't make that mistake again ever. These opportunities are simply too precious to mess with.
What we speak about, will be what we speak about. Obviously. So my prepared notes comprise a vault of possibility (if you will) from which to draw, when we get to the end of any one topic we generate spontaneously, and there's an opening to create the next one. In this regard, my prepared list is extensive and comprehensive. Even so, I already know we won't get to most of the items on it, not even in the generous timeframe he's allocated for our call. Better to be too prepared than to not be prepared enough. That's what I say.
Whatever essays I write next (by that I mean at least for the next year or more) will come from this space. It's our relationship in whatever we speak about, which fuels my writing. It's our relationship in whatever I write about, which fuels these essays. I know what I'm doing. But I no longer ask why or how. Listen: I used to ask those questions. But I don't anymore (I never got convincing answers for them anyway). What's patently obvious however, is this is what Life has given me, and I've taken it on wholeheartedly. This is what I was born to do. I do it well. Forty plus years later, fifteen of them writing these essays, there's ample evidence of that.
So go my thoughts as I sit, staring out the window, waiting (it's a pregnant wait). The phone rings. He's on time - within seconds. It's not a secretary or a PA (Personal Assistant) or a communicator who'll connect him. It's him - just like you when you call a friend. The whole thing is extraordinary in its minimalism.
TRANSFORMATION IS GETTING TO SEE AS A POSSIBILITY WHO YOU MIGHT BE REALLY.
