You don't know where you are going. You don't know how to get there. And you arrive just the same. Ghanaian saying

Sometimes everything has to be enscribed

on May 15, 2014

Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you.

Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart.

David Whyte

When I was fifty-five I decided I wanted to be an original. I wanted to stop doing what others expected of me and discover the person who emerged. For the past twenty years I have been exploring new ways of experiencing the world I come in contact with and how it changes me.

On Mother’s Day one of my sons said “Mom, you think about life a lot and like to write so why don’t you do a blog” When another son called to wish me Happy Mother’s Day, I mentioned the blog idea. He put his eleven old son on the phone to offer advice. This grandson has a blog and walked me through creating one of my own on Word Press. Voila! Here I am, ready to write my stories about that great sky and find the unique line written inside me.

    I went for a run a few months back and I had a similar realization:
    The adventures of LIfe truly begin when you ignore the expectations of others and follow the whisperings of your own heart.
