Into the Wild
The more I simplify, the more I see.
It's not about you, it's not about me.
It's not about the gods and idols
in which we might believe.
It's about Life. Spirit. Art.
People. Nature. Energy.
The rest tends to become a bit noisy.
But the wind, the Sea,
the cool Earth, they calm me.
The fire that begins such
a dance of divine alchemy.
Birdsong at sunrise.
The wolves howling at dusk.
Hawks circling, deer hiding,
and horses running wild.
The innocence in the eyes
of a sweet, young child.
Yes, the more I simplify,
I see it's not about such idle wishes.
Life is for the living and exploring,
it's for creating, and not for waiting.
I can see exactly how I've gotten here.
It's never too late to take the Captain's seat
