It is September and close to the end of another year for me.  And what an incredible year it has been…

I have traveled to far flung places.
Seen, heard and felt things that will have forever changed me.

I have lived fully.  The meaning, the moments and the memories.

I have felt deeply.  The wonder, the awe, the overwhelming passion for love and for life

I have loved completely.  With my heart and with my soul.

I have enjoyed simply.  With my toes in the water, my sights set on sunrise and sunset.

Another year marker will soon be here.  If change helps us to grow, then I am open to all the growth that my next year on this earth has in store for me.

Day 336 - Roots & Wings

As my son is getting ready to embark on 3 months of adventure in America, I am reminded again that our children are only ever on loan to us. I was gifted with the joy of watching mine grow into bright, beautiful and kind young adults.

Each with a big, beautiful heart, an admirable work ethic, a healthy understanding of the competitiveness that abounds in the world we live in, a strong sense of right and wrong and a wanderers spirit.

With humour, with love, with gratitude, in peace and with hope they are beginning to forge their way in this world.

With roots and with wings.

And with all my love.

Day 311 - Purple Shroud

Behind her purple shroud she hid
Watching the people and all that they did
Seeing the world through a purple haze
Hidden enough to avoid their gaze
Behind her purple shroud she hid
And what she saw made her glad she did.

Day 307 - In our Hands

The magic…
What is it?
It’s the dream. Creativity. Originality. Perseverance. Hard work. Endeavour. Invention. Reinvention. Re-reinvention. Adapting. Tweaking. Evolving. Growth.

Still dreaming.

Onion Truth

I have learned again, recently, that some people see the truth as an onion. From the heart outwards layer upon layer of flesh and substance is built up to mask what is real at the core.

The layers are there sometimes to protect. Perhaps a secret deemed too big, or too sensitive, or too sore to reveal.

The layers are there sometimes to enable one to do things they know to be wrong. Each layer is only one tiny step away from what is true, or real, or right but they add together to create an opaque view. A view so shadowy and shady and far from that which is real that right and truth are hidden. And a new, slightly fake, real is revealed. One that allows wrong to be presented as right.

The layers are there to distract, divert and deter. It takes a certain kind of determination, devotion, commitment and care to peel those layers away when they are being so carefully held together. The more layers, the more likely you are to deter intruders.

There are lots of reasons why there are layers. Layers don’t hurt the onion.
But peeling an onion always makes me cry.

The escape in dreams from reality.

Day 289 - Pre-Dawn

A time when thoughts and feelings collide.

Before the sun rises on a new day, the heart and mind steal moments to meander through memories. The ones that hide from daylight.

And neither sleep nor dawn will come when called.
