Don't Look Back...
So here starts 2015…one, two and three already!
And now "4". So fast.
I am trying to learn to say "Welcome 2015" for that is the very best choice to make!
"Time is nature's way of keeping everything from happening at once." (Woody Allen)
Have you been to the Grand Canyon?
Have you stood at the edge of it and looked out and down?
Gorgeous. But it makes you just catch your breath at the breadth and depth, at the color, and luminosity, at the way the sky and air and land meet up to make something so amazing there are barely words.
Every year we get should be like that…maybe even MORE so as we get older because like putting the pieces in a jig saw puzzle you get closer to seeing "the big picture".
But 2015 makes me "catch my breath" too. It rolls down in front of me and disappears into the soft fog of surprise. No choice but to step forward now and as dear Sharon says (see # 3 above)…"Don't look back, you are not going that way."
So "let's hold hands while we cross the street" and together we'll make this the best and most amazing and most fascinating and most interesting and most beautiful year yet.
My journal "prompt" word for the challenge the first week was "attentiveness". So that shall be the central theme beginning this week.
