{Day 18}

I feel the stretch.  The stretch of writing and it’s in the pulling out of my very being the words to etch into the paper.  Like the curve of a letter S.  Each one of these “letters” to you and to myself are a movement of muscle.  Exercising my brain to document and account for the happenings of now.  Where will that winding path down these letters on this blog take me?  This journey will bend me just like an S.  It will shape me more into the person I am supposed to be.  If I am willing.  To let go and not be in control.  I am thankful today that this journey can be an S and not a Z.  Fully embrace this experience.  Not just get from point A to point B (Z) but like taking a walk (S).

I love this last picture.  It is one of my favorites.  A moment of joy and delight.  Not caring about a thing in the world.  This is from the wedding I went to on day 6.  This amazing woman asked for a chat and I was more than happy to oblige.  Thank you my friend for a lovely conversation and for your encouraging words.  Thanks for taking the time to listen and laugh with me.  For living in the here and now.

    I think what you are doing is unbelievable. It is such a sacrifice on your part. I will be linking this to my blog and telling everyone I know about this!
