Horizons


As I look out onto the horizon and gaze at the glassy water, the mountains beyond and onward to the distant sky, I can’t help but wonder.

Does this dream end? Or does it just continue out into space to wander endlessly?  And should I hold on for the ride?

I used to think I was a good person, this last year has given me pause for thought. I think I’m a good person, but I wonder as I number all of my imperfections do I have as many positive attributes and why do I not number those in my head first?  I try to good by the world, but I do spend a lot of time in fear and I think that takes me away from those I love most and gives me less freedom to do what I love most, whatever that may be.  

What is it?  What is it that makes me tick?

As I get ready for the girls to go back to school and look ahead at free time to pursue my art, I wonder What it is that will fill that time? What does that look like and how do I help contribute to my families’ well being?  Will that be textile art, poetry, painting, spiritual practice? A combination of all of the above and do I have a way to make the time for it all? Is that possible?  Are there other ways of expressing my creativity that include my children more?  

What is clear is that I never run out of questions and I’ll put that in the positive attributes column!
