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

Give and Take

on July 4, 2016

Two big trips in one month have undone me.
I see in the mirror that aging’s o’er taken me
My bones creak with knowing, my gait is slowing
I certainly have been brought up short.

Mind set on perseverance I plowed ahead
Burned all my energy going the distance
Got home, collapsed and then I asked
Is this really worth it?

The answer calls for creative investment
Spending my energy on what I like best
Expanding, enriching life in my home town
Short travels with family icing on my cake.

  1. Hope you are rested dear xx

  2. I think you often feel like a you need a holiday when you’ve been on a big trip, even if it was supposed to be relaxing 🙂 Glad you’re feeling more rested now.

    Thanks Andrea. The thing is my trips were demanding, though fun. I realize I dread action-packed events and am making adjustments accordingly.
