So i had a great weekend, all things considered. Was in New York..no, not running the marathon, but visiting with a dear friend. Spent some time outdoors, leaves crunching underfoot - that delicious smell of autumn, warm sun, cold nights...can't beat it. Reminds me of my childhood - grew up on the side of a mountain in central PA, spent many days tromping through the woods...
..and i'm still tromping through the woods...woods of adulthood- i
think i'm going to plan a pre-mid life crisis..though it's not quite as
effective when it's planned, i'm afraid. But sometimes these
'woods' get me down - when i take stock of my life thus far - not
exactly where i want to be ...and so i need to dig in and make happen
those things that will prevent me from a real mid-life crisis...
So..here's to strapping on some hiking shoes and walking through this
part of my life. Here's to digging in and making happen those
things that i want and need. Here's to enjoying life to the
fullest and taking lifes' blows square on, but recovering from them
Here's to forgiveness and mended relationships.
And here's to being kissed by a stranger....
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
