I Carry Tools

I carry tools.

Tools-

To build.

To repair.

To destroy.

Not all of my tools came with instructions.

Not all of my use of tools came with the skill to use them.

Some tools-I haven’t even picked up yet.

Some tools-I carry without ever using.

I’m still an apprentice

And student.

Trying to build

Without too much damage.

    I do think that living as a mindful apprentice is one of the many keys to a peaceful and productive life. Not all rosy but answers can be in that tool box.

  5. Love this! And I can relate to it for sure. 🙂

  6. …..and the joy of being an apprentice is that, if you are unsure, you can always ask the master!

    We should all have a tool bag to get to get through the maze of a thing we call life.
