Patience - silence - indecision - a feeling of being lost - directionless - empty.
It's a place between worlds, between what was and what will be. A place of loss of expectation and of wanting something my way. A time of blankness rather than confusion.
Maybe it feels sad - it can, of course. Or perhaps it can feel bleak. Meaningless.
But then I wake to a new dawn and can see another day of beauty. It's the small moments - the puff of a horse's breathe, the twitch f a tree branch, the quiet of the day just as the snow starts to fall heavy and slow.
The moments are counted in heartbeats.
And maybe that is the place where we can finally begin.
Begin to start the journey again. To count the breaths in the day rather than the success of the greater whole. To appreciate the smallest try rather than the goal. To live in the now rather than the past or the future.
I hope that you can join me here - in the silence of the moment, in the stillness between the notes. The perfection of the present will bring the amazement of the future.
TO MY READERS:
Have you lived here as well? How did you bring joy to this moment rather than sorrow? How do you smile - when all you feel is emptiness? How much fuller is life when you live in each of its moments?
I look forward to hearing from you. Blessings,
