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

A New Beginning – Again

I'm at the point of a new beginning
I never thought I'd find myself here
My brand new knee is working  fine
And so this is not  about that

My son is planning a move in the near future
He has told me about in the past
He planned to sell his duplex - rental property 
Then sell his own home and move South

I had heard this before and put it aside
Nothing to bother me yet
This time I listened and knew it is real
My tears and sadness set in

He told me this was always his plan 
When they moved here twenty years past
I was in Chicago living my own new life
Never dreaming I'd move back  myself

Then I remembered the wonderful challenge
Facing new obstacles, solving new problems
Building new friendships in the Greenbriar Apartment
Exploring a rich thriving life

 I savor the gift to continue here
Living my life as it teaches new lessons
After  experiencing so many kind hearts 
Tending me after my recent knee surgery
I know the Greenbriar is truly my home

And as my son says, we'll always be family
No matter the place we call home

Lessons From an Oak Tree


Exercising  knee
Of my new knee replacement 
I ponder future

Oak tree's crimson leaves
Introduce a new topic
Revolving goodness

Leaves come and flourish
Green replaced by bright crimson
Then leaf piles for play

My aging knee gone
Temporarily dormant
Will be good as new
