Our lives are a series of journeys – traversing various paths along the way, some straight and clearly signposted, others winding, confusing. We stumble over obstacles, the cracks in life. What matters is we move forward – time is never still, nor is life.
We might not be sure what is at the end of a certain road…but that is no reason not to explore, examine in detail. Take a risk, walk on.
Be aware how those oft travelled roads change form with the seasons. For a day or two a busy car-laden highway becomes a mystical wintry snow grotto where only the odd car passes.
The norm is never just that…a new angle, emotion is required to see the road in a new light…to see the view ahead in a manner transformed.
That doesn’t mean we should charge through life obliviously – take time to notice, be aware of the surroundings. They will raise a smile, ignite creative thoughts, inspire stories, poems, art.
Along the way we stop for nourishment, sharing a meal with friends and family.
Here we not only satiate our physical hunger but that of the soul as well; the location often setting the ambience and mood for the occasion.
Birds and their flight of freedom never fail to grab our imagination; their elegant effortless glide into the skies, their expanisve wings stretched to the full.
How often don’t we dream of just that – stretching out, soaring away. But then again, perhaps we already do – every moment of our lives…unconscious of the mystical flight of living.
Finally, I would like to wish each and everyone of you a wonderful celebration on New Year’s Eve and may 2018 be a peaceful year filled with joy and creativity.
As I’m hosting a New Year’s Eve dinner party, I’ve been busy preparing a menu which I would like to share with you.
