It’s About Time…

IMG_6039-2 copy

There are a lot of changes… losses of sorts… I should feel empty… but instead… I feel freedom… like it all fluttered out to make space for something else… or maybe not… maybe there is nothing else for me…

But… I don’t really believe that… there’s always something else… it might not be what I think I want it to be… but there is always something else…

That’s a nice thought…

There’s always something else… always something more… always something fresh… always a place to land when I fall… there is always something else…

Not sure how this writing will go… not sure where I want it to go…

Writing opens my heart and fills me with possibilities… possibilities that are sometimes painful… sometimes scary… sometimes it’s easier to stay closed…

At least… it was… but like that bud… sooner or later… being closed hurts too much and you have to open… flower… all over again… even though you know the blossom will eventually wilt… and fall away… it has to be done…

I’m 62 years old… don’t I think it’s time?

It’s time… isn’t it?

It is…

So… I will write… and on the days that it pleases me… I will share my words with the world… and on the days that it doesn’t… I will ponder them and squander them until another day…

Bertha flutters by… it’s about time… she whisper shouts as she goes…

 

Live Your Options…

Shopping FrustRecently I was shopping with a friend… who complained about the checkout system of the store we were in… I opened my mouth to respond… but… Bertha’s… voice popped out… instead of mine…

You don’t have to shop here… if it bothers you… shop somewhere else…

Well… thankfully that breezy quip didn’t start and argument… but I was glad to get out of the store just the same and carry on with our day…

It wasn’t until I got home that… Bertha… told me…

I meant that for you…

Huh? How could that be meant for me… I wasn’t the one complaining… although I did find their system to be a little… okay a lot… cumbersome…

Of course… Bertha was all too happy to fill me in…

Seems as though she was referring to my life… not my shopping habits… and the times that I complain about the way things are… while continuing to do them… just the way I always have… without considering that I always have other options…

So… today… I think some contemplation time is in order… to consider what I’ve been complaining about… what my options are… and how I can live them…
