It’s gonna get loud,
wild, and so
go with those sounds…
add your own voice,
even out-of-tune, but
don’t be consumed with an ideal of silence
for some meditations
come with the waving of a wand,
tapping it twice on your left shoulder,
“We’re living in the brisk breaths of wildness
for that is how
we hear the mysterious magic
in the roaring sounds of cacophony.”

I woke up with a lot of noise outside my window this morning.
I had a choice: complain, or join in the cacophony.
I turned on my music and grooved.
I danced a little while doing the things that needed to be done on a Monday morning. I laughed at how it’s so easy to get stuck in an idea in which silence is a necessary tool for creativity. Yep, it helps, but there’s also a need for loudness in the creative process.
So, if you can, then give it a try today. Let go of predetermined ideas, and turn up the volume in your life.
Join in the cacophony of being alive!
