"....and that is where you found me, at the water's edge.
I could see across the river then and I showed YOU
the other side-
But you, in your boat of reason
sailed smoothly across....
leaving me to swim."
T.L. Starks~Waves 2003
Here it is, the magical thinking day...a new New Year comes to pass.
Magically I will extract all the poison, I say- from the old days and put it on the compost pile. Hmmmm...maybe magic isn't the word, perhaps mightily is how I proceed this day.
Unforgettable moments to grow on:
|And I, you...|
|True, true wonder...|
|Might I always leap when overwhelmed!|
|May I always, always notice such things...|
|And be humbled by the enormity of beauty, be still when it gets noisy; deeper still when it gets too quiet.|
|Walk a ways, every day.|
|Try on serenity- wear it, share it be aware of it.|
What I will forget- nothing. What will aid me, all of it. What hurt me most- me. Lessons earned, lessons learned...and may all of it make me grateful.
