I have this strong desire now to be something more. I guess we all do, within some part of ourselves we ask, “is this it?”
This blog is a meandering journey through my life, past and present. Many of my stories are of how when life knocks us flat on our caboose, and we are lost and can’t see a way out – then we do, and what then?
Like finally finding the proverbial end of the world, but we discover there is another side. On the other side we can see these other people, they are doing what it is you want to be doing (whatever that may be).
Ah, Temenos – that sacred place within ourselves, that grove of trees where happiness rests contented in the arms of hope, reason and peace. I seek that.
To look within ourselves, than learn how we may apply that knowledge and use it, somehow; in this world which often seems so empty of reason.
I’m at the edge, I’m tip-toeing along the precipice of this new place. Inside me I feel like I have this piece of Tim, my dead lover. I have his strength, his devil-may-care attitude and a confidence, perhaps. Funny that within me it feels so much different from observing it in him. You learn from these people, these loves, those brief intangible times are almost sacred to me now. I feel now almost like I was serving GOD the last four years of my life. I came to understand this role only when we learned that Tim had Cancer. A caregiver is serving someone else. Your needs, your desires, are less important than theirs. I sacrificed alot for Tim. I don’t regret any of it. Not one moment. Even the worst I now feel served another purpose.
So I have come to see this online journal just as much about telling stories and images, as it is also about this other thing now that has re-defined me. I am more now, and I wanted this blog to reflect that MOREness.
I guess I am not just one thing. I want to tell stories about this rambling path towards wherever it is exactly I’m going. The destination at the moment is hazy. Maybe the destination isn’t so important anymore. Maybe happiness is about the ride.
So sit back, get comfy and if you enjoy long-winded sojourns into philosophy, history, reason, the nature of God, happiness, peace, hope, family and the divine? This is the place for you. ;)
