No Response-

I sometimes wonder about the lack of response

When I’m made to wait

Meeting halfway

Silence

I wait at my desk, at doorways, the top of stairways, on the street and in parking lots

The phone does not ring, the doorbell does not chime, there is no salutation-knock- or car rumbling to a stop

And I wonder during those moments:

Was it me-is it an argument-a lack of respect-another crisis- a comrade stating “you owe them nothing”- miraculous healing, is this some karma response for a time when I yielded no response, or a simple memory lapse?

Truth be, there is nothing owed me beyond simple human civility. Sure a call would be nice, a rescheduling, an email to let me know.

Did they lose my number, get lost, lose hope, lose themselves, or give up?

It would seem that this is the norm- a social worker, healer, therapist, leader, calmer- stood up.

Did the thought of change or relief derail too much from the safety of the known, create too much chaos and overwhelm?

Did the path out of bed yield no escape to the point of exhaustion?

Is my single interaction one of the steps towards absolution or was all of this meaningless?

Did the universe somehow read that I wasn’t up to such a feat on this day, in this moment, to give what normally comes without cost and grant me reprieve?

Would somehow the cost of this interaction, for us both, create a fantastical ripple in the space time continuum, that allowance of suffering on their part and mild annoyed curiosity on my part was well worth the avoidance of future calamity?

What if I leave? My voicemail is empty. I do not see them walking in the distance. If they are late will I miss the opportunity to reinforce their strengths and meet them where they are at? Will I miss the opportunity to give what I am called to provide?

Who learns from this? Me or them or
C. all of the above?

I’m guessing you’ve already decided your response.

For me it’s been 30 minutes and time is up. No judgement, just questions and curiosity displayed in a rambling poetic missive to spark your own.
