This is the official 101 blog post! Can you believe it?! Who knew, when I started with "Chainsaw Reaction" that I'd find subtle little things to write about in 100 different ways!!! My oh my...life is just one big learning experience, graduating means nothing in terms of what each day after brings you, and many of those lessons are painful though thankfully, not permanent in their delivery.
And what has life taught you in the last year? It seems many of us are awakening to a new beginning in terms of being more aware of our food, our environment...each other. I was always such an independent sort...the last few years have taught me that interdependence is the key. I don't know where I'd be without the friends who have walked with me, talked with me, carried me, stood up for me and sometimes sat silently with me...holding my hand. No man is an island, and if he thinks he is...how lonely his shore must be. I have encountered so many wonderful souls lately, I don't know...maybe the moon is working with me, or the tides have changed in such a way that all who should gather together find their way to one another. I'm just saying, it seems like harmony- small get togethers, simple dinners, sitting on the swing, listening to sweet music, conversing with the younger sect- dwells within all of us and sometimes swirls all around, bringing a common need to the activity at hand. Or...maybe that's what summer is for, not sweltering heat to be endured, but harmonious hearts reaching their thaw point...melting away the cold remembrances, opening up to new, warm beginnings. I don't know about you, but when I'm experiencing something marvelous, good beyond all reasons and seasons...it only gets better to share such things with another. Maybe that's what it means when it is said that love always creates...
