from the book embracing now: pain, joy, healing, living .

our location,
our desired entertainment,
our preferences,
our purchases,
our favorites:
yes, they are tracking us.

foods and songs and colors,
sizes and styles and flavors,
miles and lanes and moods.

but, as our destinations
are revealed
and our tendencies
are disclosed
and our clicks
are funneled,
what if the tracking
of our movements
revealed these words
as descriptions
of our character:
love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control?

more than data and surveillance,
these words might be revealing
ourselves willingly,
as service, on track to
make this world a better place.
