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,

Powerful words....heartfelt expression of the realities of this world. One can benefit the most by allowing every emotion, acknowledging it, thanking it for it's lesson, and watch it pass. Blessings and Peace

Yes I have lived there .... I did not, though, ask the good questions you have asked there Mattie! Good on you for that. The sorrow, the emotions.. just a reflection of what the focus is. It can be hard to change a focus, when we try. Don't try. Better to add in another (fresh) focus, for me personally that healing focus is always Gratitude for what I DO have and enjoy and am and do. Still ... sometimes the subconscious needs processing time. We cannot always control the process. Waiting .... patience, and faith in God (for me), is powerful. Blessings my friend ..
