"Maybe I think too much for my own good."
~ Paul Simon ~
We can think ourselves all the way into
The achievement of that which we long for,
The art of possibility,
And then we can think ourselves all the way out of it,
"I can do it," we think. "Yes!"
"Never mind- no I can't. Who am I kidding?"
And all the while, just by taking small steps,
Moving in the direction we want to go,
We are getting there.
It may not play out as anticipated, and I might find a new and unexpected direction as I make my way along the path, but action is the thing that moves me forward: action in spite of whatever my mind may think.
