There's been a lot of talk of resolutions. Fourteen days into this new year of 2011 and it only just occurred to me that I didn't make any for myself. Hopefully it's not too late! In each and every aspect of my days, I resolve to:
Be patient. The poetry will not always be in full bloom. Instead, it's in a constant state of blossoming.
Express myself in truthful ways. Consider life as a song and I am singing.
Notice the kindness in little things - even if they are tucked away in the corner.
Making decisions may be a dense journey, like battling fog on a long stretch of bridge, but keep watch for the other side - the mountains, the shore, the glimmering light. Soon you'll be home.
Take on the challenge, as twisted as it may be - because it will eventually lead me to a more peaceful understanding of the world.
Keep perspective and gain some more - it can only help to look deep within myself for answers, and even farther - through the trees and to the ocean - to make sense of it all.
