Last year, with the help of many beautiful people, I was able to rasie enough money to make a little dream of mine come true and put some of my poetry in to print.
Although I'm not such a poor vagabond any more, the experience of feeling no ownership over my poems thanks to this platform was very special for me. It allowed me to share my words completely freely, giving the books away as gifts, in exchange for other forms of art or love, or learning to accept the offering of money and using it for a little bit of pocket money whilst I travelled on the road.
This process allowed me to see the flow of giving and recieving. We can only give once we learn how to recieve completely. And we can only recieve once we learn to give without expecting. The universe truly looks after those who give with their heart:
"When You Give, Do Not Let Your Left Hand Know..."
I would love to share more of my words with the world again, I have three more collections of poems to put on paper and to do it again with the help of others would be so special, it makes the process of creating them and sharing them so diffferent, it's something about purity, it's something about volition, intention, breaking rules and using money in a different way.
Anyone who donates, little or alot, near or far, I will send you out some poetry as soon as they are printed in a month or two.
The more money raised the more I can print, and the more I can share. The last time I made the books they cost around £2 to print so you have an idea.
I love you all, we are spirit and have no where to go, nothing to see, but we are also human, like fish in a river, the current is guiding us, but we must also swim:
Fish We Are
Our spirits are as water,
As the rivers, as the seas;
Effortless, never doubting where
To go, always moving with ease…
But as humans, we are like fish,
We must trust the currents yet we must also swim,
We must decide this dream with clenched fists,
Until we return to be her or him.
