I Carry Tools

I carry 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.


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


  7. …..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.
