As we sit today and wonder exactly what it is IвЂ™m doing only at that keyboard, we canвЂ™t conjure the maximum amount of feeling while he did for the people little ditties. It couldnвЂ™t be safe. Or sustainable. Yet itвЂ™s exactly the things I want in a wayвЂ”to grasp and hold lightning for one minute like he did, for meaning to flow through the conduit of my own body and out these ten fingers that are tangled.
And so I wake up early morning after early morning, stay prior to the keyboard, and flex myself into the classes, looking forward to lightning to strike.
