This entry has to do with origami
only to the extent that it is about a square,
but not a square of paper, but one of time.
My recent birthday
was a square of seven sevens:
I am at the same distance of being twenty-eight
as I was when I was seven
and as I am today of being seventy.
Looking at such chunks of time,
Life seems to be just a blink.
I realize in bewilderment
that this is the first week
of my fiftieth year,
– mi año CINCUENTA.
A Wise Soul advises me to do away
with this habit of keeping numbers.
I will pay attention!
I have decided
to focus on the “Here and Now”.
I must keep no count
and forever live in the present moment…
