At the horizon

Post by holley » Thu Feb 04, 2021 11:24 am

There are sight and time horizons,
ie. at 5' above sea level the horizon is 2.7 miles
and for a male born in 1948 the life horizon is 73.1 yrs. (exactly my current age)
I want to say something about this but unsure what it is, except;
Whew, made it !
Any insights?

Event Horizon

Being up close to an Event Horizon and feeling it; unable to gauge it’s texture, dimensions, implications is a unique experience.....reverberates, disorients. On the brink of nothing and everything.

"Whew made it" was glib attempt at humor, denying where I am/was/will be.
That language fails as well. Perhaps if I turn back, look behind from where i came, a favorite past time of the old ...but no, there is no horizon going back, in fact no going back. Simply am up against the/a horizon that calls to be, what, entered/passed thru/turned from/ walked along ? My knee hurts, fell 3 weeks ago walking down to Cedar lake with my son and g'daughter, and discomfort has been increasing rather then decreasing.

These words, I suppose, are an attempt to walk along the horizon, not unpleasant and perhaps all that can be done at this moment. Wondering if it is permeable/movable or a figment (that's rich)- an illusion of my own making? You are invited to walk with me a bit, tell me of what you see from your angle on your horizon. I'd like that....

Gung-Ho ?

Rereading "The Grace In Dying" by Kathleen Singh, a hospice nurse and, seeing dying and death mapped out so luminously, sheds light on that horizon and feeling more acclimated, prepared and appreciative....but not yet gung-ho.

At this event horizon
noticing
it prompts experience
of disintegration/dissolution,
like sand from a beach returning to the ocean,
awash in the turbulence
of this, this pull.

The imperatives of youth have given way to other dynamics which I’m groping to adjust/acclimate/welcome as I did the passions of younger years.
Tell me of your acclimatization/welcoming.
