tonight: yes and yes

“…he thought about it and said he didn’t think we should be afraid to embrace whimsy. I asked him what he meant by whimsy, and he struggled to define it. He said it’s that nagging idea that life could be magical; it could be special if we were only willing to take a few risks.”
-Donald Miller

in the end, it comes down to walking through these doors
as they present themselves
some seeming imposing and alive in their bigness
and wide-eyed trembling bodies make hard choices
to pass through, deliberate and determined
some beckon the way a warm spring night
invites tired feet to kick up so wine can be sipped
as a hush falls in the backyard as the neighbors put the little ones to sleep
some mysteries remain such until long after
the conversations, theorizing, cease
you just wake up one day aware that you walked through the door
because you had to or you wanted to or you thought you should
and found yourself, calculated or not, standing right here
on the inside or outside, the other side at least
and where you are, there you are
threshold crossed when you said yes
and yes is the affirmation that opened this world of doorways
(it is good. so very good.)
