I am the one on a journey of self discovery through uncharted waters.

I am the one who travels under my own power, unaccompanied and without the baggage of the past.

I am the one who leaves the safe harbor behind with only my dreams to guide me.

I haven’t posted in a very long time. These past few months have been a time of decision and coming to grips with the many changes that are about to happen.

I am about to embark on a journey, a change of life, without a net. These are changes that have been a long time coming and were well considered. But that hasn’t made them any easier.

It seems that when I delayed making the decisions, the Universe would step in and give a nudge.  At first those nudges were gentle, then more insistent.  And finally they resembled a good swift kick in the butt.

Balanced on the Precipice of Delight          

small schoodic 

solid, concrete, unyielding
You can hardly imagine something less itinerant
Speckled pink and gray, black and white
It sparkles in the hot summer sun
Kissed by the surging ocean,
shaped by the energy of wind, water and earth
Hard ridges, sharp and jagged like puzzle pieces gone astray
Smooth curves, soft to the touch warm your back

Moving slowly toward the sea each season, ever changing
unnoticed unless your memory holds the picture
Imperceptible motion
Then it drops
Drops suddenly from its home,
becoming mobile for a moment or two
Free from its bondage it rests
Learning its new place in the world
Finding its balance

Sit barefoot on the edge
Feel the energy dance within
Get up and join the dance
I am calm, I am connected
Recognize the future
The ocean sings to me
The clouds wave as they pass in the searing blue sky
You come too

I move towards my destiny
The journey appears slow as granite
And then the drop
Drop into the sea of infinity,
Where all are one and time and space have no meaning
Find my place
I am balanced on the precipice of delight
