Two Lover’s On The Beach


Our New Home

Keaau Beach
April, `73

C.S. and I have been getting along like lovers. I didn’t realize how
much I had missed her until she was back in my arms. Our romantic
feelings couldn’t have gotten any better. The Hawaiian sunsets and
beaches probably had a lot to do with it.

Carol Sue was not enthusiastic when it came to my yoga class. But,
since it was almost over anyway, she tolerated it. I only missed one
session in the five-week period. I wished I could say the same thing
for my time spent outside of class. Living on the beach was not
exactly the best environment for becoming holy. After her arrival, well,
let’s just say I almost forgot to go to class. Nevertheless, even with
all those distractions, I was still one of Sahash’s better students.
In fact, I might have gone on to become his best student were it not
for the last week of the 40-day period. That was graduation week, but
not for me.

About me: Marvin Gaye’s song, "What’s Going On" was playing on the jukebox when I went up to the counter and bought another cup of coffee. When I got back, the painting on the wall next to where I was sitting jumped out at me, the same way it had done many times before. On it was written a diatribe on creativity. It was the quote at the bottom, though, that brought me back to this seat time after time. The quote had to do with infinity; it went something like this: Think of yourself as being in that place where infinity comes together in a point; where the infinite past and the infinite future meet, where you are at right now. The quote was attributed to Hermann Hesse, but I didn’t remember reading it in any of the books that I had read by him, so I went out and bought Hesse’s last novel, Magister Ludi. I haven’t found the quote yet, but I haven't tired of looking for it either.
