Everything except language
knows the meaning of existence.
Trees, planets, rivers,time
know nothing else. They express it
moment by moment as the universe.
Even this fool of a body
lives it in part, and would
have full dignity within it
but for the ignorant freedom
of my talking mind.

Moments after finishing this post I found out that my cousin Jane passed away after many many years of living with MS.
She was 46.
She is pain free now.
