|Birthday card from my Mom@ChertheArt|
This space, just for me.
A place to express myself,
A place to dig deep in this
A place to be REAL. Raw.
To give of myself as I come.
I've come to love this place, this space,
in the cyber world.
Just for me
to share ME,
and connect with
You...and you...and you.
I started this blog when I was almost 32.
At 32, I wrote about randomness, love, life and...well...32!
33 brought some deep thoughts...
A letter to my dad, who died when he was only
33. Weird to be that age.
33 has brought with it a
New Relationships that have touched me to my core.
A whirl of big events.
That has left me catching my breath a little bit.
A year that has brought with it,
a feeling of constantly trying to catch up with myself.
Moments that have challenged me.
Some depression. Some demons that have come back to be beat
once and for ALL.
Certainly smiles and Joyful waves washing over this world of mine.
Moving past "friendships" that were never really good for me,
And letting in others that have blessed me so deeply.
Moment after moment that has left me
To SAIL my SHIP on to
Taking with me the lessons of 33.
Lessons that are reminders of what's really important,
All that is spread out before me.
All that is ALREADY there,
All that has ALWAYS BEEN,
Waiting for ME.
Not always quite ready to see
But I'm READY.
Ready to Sail on....
A ship, ready for new horizons.
"Bring on 34", said the Ship.
Interesting that I just now found out that my mom was inspired to paint the above painting while listening to her and my dad's favorite song, Sailing by Christopher Cross. I was never a huge fan of the song but it DOES bring back so many memories of being a kid. Whenever it came on, my mom would tell us that it was one of our dad's favorite songs. And even if I didn't like the song so much for the music itself, it did bring a smile to my heart.
