Life Journey


After standing outside with the dogs this morning I posted

Sun gently rising.

Breaking of new light.

Crisp morning air.

Dreams of new beginnings

Floating upward

With my breath

Like clouds.


The last four lines really triggered something inside me. Dreams – are they floating upward and dissipating or are they ascending for their rebirth? A lot of changes have transpired the last year and a half and at times I have felt lost. I am trying to find my “me” again, to be more open with myself and to enjoy being who I am today – not who I was yesterday or who I’ll be tomorrow but who I am today.

We are here for a limited time and to live it in a shell is not an option. People, places, things happen on a daily basis – detours taken, words spoken, words changed. Hold it and acknowledge it. Everything happens for a reason and there are lessons to be learned. What we do with it is up to us. There’s a truth to be examined, not discarded. Maybe a conversation to be had, clearing of minds. Listening with an open heart and soul to the people and sounds filling the air. View life with eyes wide open on a daily basis – open to new pathways, new discoveries, new adventures, new views, new people, new places, new explorations, new writing.

I am here today and I dream, I hurt, I cry, I laugh, I love, I work, I play, I live in the moment. Today.
