"Spin" in aviation training: a "stall" or loss of lift, a subsequent nose-down spin, the specific actions required for recovery, and the feeling, after recovery, that you could tackle absolutely anything!

Thursday, 6 October 2011


Listen, in the quiet.
Settle and let your muscles slide over your bones to rest.
Let go expression and move off your concerns until
Your only spice is calm.

There is so much to hear in this pause;
Never nothing.
The Hum of the Earth underneath;
Chugging and firing,
Shifting and raging one season into the next;
The months, days and moments, 
All dripping clues to bait your desire.

Static from the sky;
Remnants of the first blast,
And others twinkling in and out;
More clues to your place in a
Vast domain.

Your breathing and pulse; the 
Texture and form of your body as you
Adjust and twist.
Acknowledge yourself,
Your force.

So listen,
And take to heart the sounds, messages, of
The powerful desire that fires you,
The remarkable galaxy that hosts you,
And the busting momentum flourishing you through it.
