Try Something Tuesday : Go, Man, Go !

Things to Try:
Lie down in tall grass. Sink in and forget where you are. Then forget your name. Gather gifts from the natural world and let the stones you collect in your pockets start to pull your pants down. Write a love letter to your best friend on a big leaf.
Find a glorious spot. Sit there and breathe.”

—Sark, Eat Mangos Naked

 

***************

Have you ever eaten a really ripe mango,

peeled it with a knife and eaten it with abandon,

letting the juice run down your chin, down your hand, your arms…

and savored the treat that is that delicious orange on the inside fruit ?

Big love to you, Beautiful Brave Ones !

This reminds me of a poem my mother used to love... I think it was by langston hughes called "reflections on the gift of a watermelon pickle". I may have to google that or call and ask her as it was, or rather, is, i believe, her favorite. It's all about eatting with joy and abandon and appreciating the gift, but i haven't heard it in over 20 years.
