So fortunate am I? I am so fortunate that I forget. Lucky enough to live in mostly wilderness. Lucky enough to forget each and every walk I take (which is 355 days a year) can have either little significance…or, all the importance in the world.
Stop…Ruth, breathe in through the nose…breathe out through the mouth. Enjoy one moment. One single, minute, slice of slowing down. Look up, look down, look within!
Look at every piece of damaged goods, or as I like to say, damaged beauty. It will offer new perspective on all ills and pains, I have.
Listen…to all that is not said! Listen with mouth shut and arms wide open!
It is a falsehood to believe we will ever be here, in this spot, again!
