The Journey

I will be away for about a month. Where the winds blow me beautifully and the stars guide me truthfully. During this time, I doubt that I will be able to deliver any writings for you to read. Rest assured, you are always in my thoughts, and maybe (just maybe) I can surprise you from time to time. But most likely, I will be on this journey full-stride and will not be attending to my laptop very much. I will be back, and I always take you all with me, in my heart, anyway! 

I leave you with this piece. I just penned this, and was deeply moved whilst putting these thoughts onto paper (I always write everything on paper, in my authentic Italian leather notebook, before I move them to my computer) and my heart's desire is that what I felt when writing this, you will also feel.....

The Journey
(June 3, 2010)

Sometimes, the dreams that you dreamed never forget you, even long after you have forgotten them. You are little. Your heart full of courage. And you dream dreams. You breathe life into visions you have for yourself. You look into the skies at night, out of your window, and as you breathe, you breathe life into these pictures you’ve painted in the air and onto the tablets of your heart. Then you grow up, and slowly but surely the courage takes flight from your heart and you lose it. You forget your dreams, you lose the pictures you painted and once carried with you.

But what takes us so long to realize, is that the dreams we breathed to life continued on. It is only us who forgot them. But when we gave them life, they went on living.

And then they find us again one day. Our dreams find us and they still recognize us. Even if the courage is gone, we are broken in places, shattered here and there; when our visions find us they still remember us. And then they remind us. Of a courage we once had. Of places we once visited in our hearts once upon a starry night. And then we remember. And then we go. We go out on our journeys. We walk with our dreams. And during this time, we find ourselves.
