I’m taking smaller doses of everything I hear
and leaving nothing lacking but tasted without fear.
I’m taking shorter walks these days along the beaten path,
and spending time just gazing at every blade of grass.
I don’t know if a minute or an hour mean as much
as many days of mine, I only know right now–
this second–I am here, alert, attentively alive.
And though my days are numbered to a fraction of my life,
I will have found a haven–a place to rest awhile–
and feel the wonder of there being anything at all.
Who could ask for more?
'Keep Calm and Carry On.'
I am a writer and teacher of philosophy who lives in the Greater Philadelphia Area. I love teaching and hanging around students, wrestling with putting words together, enjoying books and animals and my family. And when I can afford it, I love to travel--hence the British advice of "keep calm and carry on." The name Morgan is Welsh and means sea dweller. And when I return to where my ancestors settled centuries ago in a small Welsh village, I feel the connections to them, the earth, to musicand poetry, and the sea. My last book, A Teacher, His Students, and the Great Questions of Life, is available on Amazon in print or Kindle format. Oh, I enjoy humor, playfulness, and just enjoying life.
