moments pressed with urgency

(dated the morning of Tuesday, August 12th)

I've awakened to that wild sense of urgency, heart skipping frantic as though the devil's on my heels and I must do something NOW, quickly, to stop this!

and then my puppy greets me with kisses and a crazy wagging tail and I shuffle to the kitchen where I fix myself a bowl of oatmeal, topped with raisins, bananas and milk, and sit, a cup of coffee in my hand, watching rain gather against street curbs.

These tiny details have become the fabric of my life, colors blending together, my heart wide open even as I breathe quick, these moments pressed with urgency.
