Being Open

Being Open

I am deeply present in this cold quiet place this gray morning of January…internalizing….reflecting…weaving stories…as far as I can remember…the future is long…could be wide or narrow…and a mystery…and then there is that difficult blessings of waiting…the cold wind tries to intervene and makes its presence known…the winds of life trying to move inwardly, simultaneous with the passage of time…I need to stay open in a posture of humility and gratitude… I need to walk…
