Touching Fire

Touching fire is touching the creative spirit, being totally in tune with where you are and what you're doing. Touching fire is when something grabs you and writes through you and you feel like you're just taking dictation. Touching fire is when it rocks. It doesn't happen very often, but it's a kick when it does. It's better than any high, better than drugs, better than sex.

I don't know what it is you're tapping into when you touch's like hitting a vein of gold, like mainlining a comet, like the ride of your life. Everything real falls away and it's just you and what you're creating.

It's the closest I come to believing in a higher consciousness, the closest I get to my primal self, the closest I get to being something pure. Enlightenment. Nirvana. The Dance of Shiva. Oneness with the essence of what you are and what you do.

That's what I can't seem to do anymore.

And I miss it.
