Maximise ‘Aha’ moments

It’s not what I want to do with my life

But what it is allowing.

Creating the conditions where I can have those Aha moments in my life.


Asking for help.

Being in community.

You need an interruption

In order to have an aha moment.

To be shifted from familiar tracks.

The dragonfly is curious.


Shedding their exoskeleton.

It was just a feeling.

My mind tells me it’s quite precarious.

On the edge of something.

Delicately poised.

We are always looking for new distinctions

Between one thing and another.

A moment of growth

That you can’t go back from.

I can’t unsee that perspective.

Like a Rubicks cube in my head.

Something has moved and

The pattern is different.

This is my life juice.

Finding out new stuff

That I can integrate into my being.
