Sometimes I wonder if the speed of thought is faster than the speed of light or the speed of anything.  I have to tell myself, often and then some ... slow down... even tell myself to breathe sometimes.

Take time, in the lap of your Maker:

Solitude of sound.
Solitude of mind.
Going off the tube.
... Going off latitude.
Going off road –
to simplitude and fortitude.
Lead me tracking back to You.
Lead me attracted to Your point of view.
My neck hurts.
My everything hurts.
My numbness even hurts.
Bring me back to You.
I need to be glue.
I am completely unglued.
God, You know it. You do.
Bring me back to You.
