    The father of English Literature, Geoffrey Chaucer , immortalized the idea that “time and tide wait for no man.” And I am sure he meant something like “now is the time,” or “seize the day,” right? And he’s right isn’t he? Time doesn’t stop just because you got a rock in your shoe.

    The idea that time is a river, and we are a stationary object within it is like imagining that the earth is flat, still in space, and the sun and the stars are all swirling around us. I suppose that from one perspective I can understand how one might imagine this to be true. But as we grow both culturally, emotionally we begin to open with compassion and truly understand that there are other beings in the world, other places, other perspectives. We are, each of us, something like spokes on a wheel, or beams of light from the sun, here and now it feels as if we are unique, alone, and separate. But as spokes reaching out from the same center, the experience of separation is only a matter of perspective.

    Author and abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe once said, “When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” This has absolutely been my experience. The question isn’t “will the tide turn,” but rather the question is “when.” And so with a lack of perspective, perhaps a lack of compassion I suppose it would be fair to find oneself in the middle of a desert, dying of thirst, wondering when the water will return. It wouldn’t be any less fair to simply go about your business, accepting things as they are, and searching for water, getting on with it. But consider that what’s moving is you. When the tide pulls out, has the water moved? Surely the water is always moving, and the earth is stable, still, and true, yes?

    The earth is actually spinning at something more than one thousand forty miles an hour (1,675 kilometers) and the moon’s gravitational force is pulling at the earth in a beautiful dance between our planets, water is pulled at by this force and as the earth spins around, and the moon spins around, there is a force which draws the bodies of water in a rhythm of our orbit. The relationship is fascinating, and beautiful to watch.

    Consider that we are each made up of nearly sixty percent water, and that water is subject to the same celestial and gravitational forces as the tide. No wonder we get sleepy when the sun goes down. The pressure is on, and the moon is pulling at us… funny, that’s when I wake up, and start to feel alive…

    I’ve felt far too much of my life that the tides have gone. I have forgotten that we are involved, all of us, in a dance of earthly and cosmic forces. I have stood on the rocks and squinted my eyes toward the sea and the sun and been so overwhelmed by grief that I had to carry my heavy heart gently to save it from breaking. And yet, if it was me that found himself five miles from the sea, then you were only dancing, and I was the one who stayed behind. Rather than peer toward you with tears in my eyes, it’s time to accept that the five mile tide was mine.

    much gratitude! enjoyed it!

  6. Sam Heywood:

    Ending with the best pure pop song of the 80s: nice.

  7. Tracie Acreman:

    The dance is continually flowing, even if I feel like I’m dancing on my own, I know my movements still have an impact on everything/ everyone else. In trying to keep an ear listening to the tide and dance of other people and the earth as well as myself, I try to remember that there is a fundamental connection, a thread. Sometimes I stop, feel left behind; when that happens next all I’ll have to do is think of you in silver speedos spinning discs in the treehouse and I’m sure I’ll smile and catch up with whatever I was thought was missing, hehe *wink*!

  8. Chinwe Onwudiwe:
