Just to be

(Written Tuesday Night 7 Jan 2014)

I discovered that most often I can’t seem to sit still.
Tonight, my mom came to visit me.
We just sat outside.
Enjoying the Summer Evening.

I sensed a battle within me.
There must be something to do.
I got assignments due.
There is always work to do.

But I think in the end, I chose the best thing.
To just be.
Just being present there outside on the stoep (verandah) with my mom.

Sometimes that presence is enough…



I am an aspiring and up and coming writer. Dubbed the wondering wanderer. Do come check out my stories.

  1. Thanks Andrea for the reply. Are you still in the east? (China Area)… forgot the term for it…happy 2014 to you. I agree there is that struggle. But the moments of being still… they are special.
