Without Meaning To

Published at Killing the Buddha on February 26, 2016.

Truth appears and recedes, but meaning feels just out of my grasp. I’m searching for something, but I’m never sure what. At moments, I feel I’m on the cusp of discovery. But then, the search tugs and pulls me in a different direction. Discovery becomes a dead end. Meaning seems almost tangible, and I reach out for it frantically. I can never be certain it is directed at me.
