Improvising Your Way Through Life

In each moment, each pursuit


It’s nothing more than living Now.

Of course you’ll f—k it up at times:

Mistakes belong to a human

As does dust upon a mirror.


In each moment, work or pastime

Improvise, extemporize.

You have encyclopedic knowledge

In your little life-so-far;

Gifts and talents, skills, capacities;

Experiential knowledge

You absorbed the moment you took breath.


If you do what I advise

You see patterns that transmogrify,

Patterns that will make you wise;

Patterns when you make each minute your device.


Despite anomalies,

Quirks, and incongruities,

This the key to bring to light

The star you are,

Becoming brighter with each gesture.


Make a pact with you yourself

Put old habits on the shelf of things gone by.


You improvise,

You start to fly.

By and by

You are the sharpest, deepest, most profound and visionary

You alive.
