Overcast

Outside it’s sunny. Sunshine and clear skies all month.

A week ago, the internal weather of disposition turned grey, the kind of milky, hazy grey that gives no rain.

Grey day followed grey, growing gloomier, feeling less and less spacious.

It looked like this pattern had settled in, perhaps it was time for a conversation.

Attention turned toward the gloomy grey .

An apparition stepped forth.

Welcome. What do you have to show me ? Why have you come ?

Half a dozen or more responses voicelessly float into the mind.

Most of the responses involve the future: some with fear, most with sadness.
All of them involve wanting, choosing and doing.
All of them carry a sense of loss, or in one case, of failure.

Thank you. To who do these come ?

Silence.

The apparition dissolved.

The internal weather lightened back to the high milky clouds that give no rain.

Who minds this ?

Silence.
