Liqueur of the Heart

by Marie Wilson

 

Consider the word consider.

Don’t break it up like they do dis-ease and co-relate.

Con & sider don’t mean anything when it comes to the word consider.

Think about it.

Sit.

In some stillness and peace and consider the situation or the person or the things.

Consider life, death, the price of eggs.

Take your time. Don’t jump to conclusions.

Do not rush consideration. Do not hasten deliberation.

Look at the facts, muse on the emotions, ask questions, talk to friends, speak to the wind.

Wait.

Ponder.

Moodle.

Free form thinking then focused inquiry.

Consider consideration – what is the objective of the thoughtful session?

Toward this end choose, edit, select.

Don’t censor, rather brainstorm.

Then whittle. Then reconsider.

Consider again.

Distill.

Distill to a fine gold essence.

Call it liqueur of the heart.

And mind. Strike the aromatic balance.

Call it Consideration.

Take a long slow drink every now and then.
