Untethered

	


        Little by little, 
	thread by thread, 
	I am becoming untethered.
	My questions trip over one another,
	my thoughts churn and roil.
	A silence that bewilders 
	settles around me like dust. 
	That’s enough of the world for today.

    Sometimes you can learn a lot by taking it easy for awhile and not stress out on the big questions... Things will work themselves out in the end. You have a way with words Jack... When I start unraveling I find the pen and paper are good substitutes for a sewing needle...
