I am the one who builds on the remnants of the ruined past,
The crumbling stone, the dilapidated safe haven that no longer shelters.
I am the one who climbs over the wall to a new beginning.
I am the one who washes myself clean, ready for what I create.
I take refuge in nature and beauty.
I am the one who realigns the stars.
Although it doesn’t seem like it on this snowy, rainy, sleeting day, Spring will be here soon, at least officially here. The frigid cold of winter has purified the land and my soul. Now it is time to plan for the future, take steps to realign the stars and create that which I desire.
The crumbling stones of the past create a new foundation. I do not discard the past but rather use its materials to create. By their destruction they make available new patterns and new opportunities to rebuild something better and brighter. Something that is more useful to me now.
