Today,  I am  sad.  I   just  found out  that  a  brother *  (* Bob)  of a  dear friend  of  mine  ,  died this  week. He  was only  64.    A  life  ended   too  soon. I    didn’t  know this person well,    but   still,   I weep for that  unfulfilled   life  that  didn’t come to  fruition.   (  this   post is  dedicated to  both    BOB  and   DIANE  (  the   music  nazi) .~  KMK


That time
I thought I could not
go any closer to grief
without dying

I went closer,
and I did not die.
Surely God
had his hand in this,

as well as friends.
Still, I was bent,
and my laughter,
as the poet said,

was nowhere to be found.
Then said my friend Daniel,
(brave even among lions),
“It’s not the weight you carry

but how you carry it –
books, bricks, grief –
it’s all in the way
you embrace it, balance it, carry it

when you cannot, and would not,
put it down.”
So I went practicing.
Have you noticed?

Have you heard
the laughter
that comes, now and again,
out of my startled mouth?

How I linger
to admire, admire, admire
the things of this world
that are kind, and maybe

also troubled –
roses in the wind,
the sea geese on the steep waves,
a love
to which there is no reply?

I am really late in writing the result of the 30 day tapping challenge, and for that, I apologize to my readers. But, here I am , once again emerging.

I had no real ” expectations” on this 30 day challenge. Well, no, i sort of did. I expected, mostly, that nothing much would happen. Which is silly to even think that, BECAUSE, you simply cannot NOT get good results from the tapping. It is impossible. the things that I have seen happen, for me, in terms of health issues, and some deeper core issues, is astounding. So, then, it was just about a few days after the 30 day challenge was up, or maybe even a bit before, I checked a medical account that I owed 2K on. I was waiting for a letter from them, telling me, what was gonna be the answer to my financial hardship letter that I wrote to them. Waiting, waiting, and waiting. Going to the mailbox, thinking a notification would be in there. Waiting. Continuing tapping, even when I hated doing that, did not feel like doing it, thought it was stupid, boring, and silly. So imagine my surprise, when, on a whim one evening late, I decided to look at ( again) the results of a blood work test that I had done, ( b/c I couldn’t remember what they had tested for), and my $$ balance, was…
hold your breath…. sit down…
and take a breath. Because that is what I DID.
my balance was now ZERO. simply ZERO. nada. gone. Zero. yeah. tap me, baby! KEEP ON!!!

and you are probably reading this and thinking, ” what??” what does this have to do with the
30 day tapping challenge? You weren’t even tapping for money… ( b/c there are ” scripts” for that!)”?

So, the answer is, that, yes, it seems like one has nothing to do with the other. However, the timing of me finding out about my zero balance, was so close to the end of the 30 day challenge, I feel it cannot be ignored. You can make up your own conclusions about this, bc I know that is what you are going to do anyway. But I SAY, Keep on, man. Or woman. Tap me, baby!!
