The Embrace of Me Now

The atoms that are me right now changes with every breath, every sip, every bite.
The cells that are me right now changes with every cell that divides or dies.
The ideas and knowledge that are me right now change with every interaction.

I’m a constant flow of matter, life and culture.
And I am the Embrace of all of this.

The Embrace of me is constant because it’s only present right now.
To change, you need a past and a future.

Words Pointing Home

I live in a linked house with my 87-year-old father. Usually, I embrace our “household” or our “family”, but today I changed and used the word “home”.

A very different quality; deeper, warmer, more love, more of an alive cocoon.
A bit uncomfortable for me as a modern, individualistic woman.

A family is based on kinship.
A household is a physical place.
A home is something that transcends and includes both.

We have experienced this so many times, that how we frame and name the Embrace, determines what we experience.
Our words are pointers to different layers of reality.
