Lightly child, lightly

How to find words
to describe a shift so subtle and internal,
yet so profound that it seems to change everything?
One sacred second, so brief yet seismic?
A movement from a dark, inchoate place of confusion
into a space of clarity and light?

  3. It is hard to find words. You just know that something has shifted or lifted. You just know.

  4. I must again thank you for the beauty of your blog and for turning your attention to my words on a regular basis. The naivete and lack of time I am able to devote to writing most likely is evident; however, you consistently read and like my posts. I am wishing you a superb weekend!

  5. I know I am late with this, though I can’t help commenting. Wayne Dyer said, “if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.” I didn’t understand this for a long time, though I tried to look at things differently. Then, it happened, like that, and it is magic.
