  • Walk to the essential. Walk to the mandatory. It might be mandatory to goof around, and have fun. Walk to eye contact. It is truly too late for some people. You cannot rehabilitate the world. If they won't look at you now, they will not look at you later. Walk to those whose eyes shine in the corner.

    Walk to conversation. Listen and enter.

    If it is noise, walk to the drumming. Listen to the hand drum, the skin, soon you will have a heartbeat in concert with the strangers who walked to the beat. Soon, sooner than you might imagine, your imagination might syncopate.

    In a synecdoche, you might find your mind is second-lining a funky tune to funk you right out of your funk. The funk was only part of the funkology.

    You can walk to the blue, it is okay to walk to the blue, you can peer over the edge, this is called living, but walk to your gut above all, your gut knows you.

    Walk to the listening channel in the burble, make a nice wire clip to your gut and your heart, and above all, baby keep walking.
