when there once was a vision


Life is always changing; we are always changing. We live in a river of change, and a river of change lives within us. Every day we’re given a choice: We can relax and float in the direction that the water flows, or we can swim hard against it. If we go with the river, the energy of a thousand mountain streams will be with us, filling our hearts with courage and enthusiasm. If we resist the river, we will feel rankled and tired as we tread water, stuck in the same place. “I’ve known rivers,” writes Langston Hughes. “I’ve known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins. My soul has grown deep like the rivers.” Am I going to flow with my river nature today, or am I going to swim against it? ………..Elizabeth Lesser

reaching for a map is rarely as easy as it seems…..they never fold back the way they began and they fight all attempts at finding the exact point…..maybe this metaphor of life gives us permission to search a little easier, to trust in the flow without refolding….

Drum sounds rise on the air,

and with them, my heart.

A voice inside the beat says,

I know you are tired,

but come.

This is the way.


that deep, deep ache of soul

The sun now comes out
in my mind and body,

and  I see clearly the fulfillment
of my heart’s desire.
….Florence Scovel Shinn

  1. There are roads yet undiscovered just beyond my vision. There are paths without name, and destinations only dreamed. Let us simply begin with a plan to only follow the pink roads……. ❤

    • when deep in transition, I feel such peace in the pause & then the swirling around me shines in kaleidoscopic color…..a spaciousness created that diminishes fear & finds trust in the heart again…..looking wide-eyed for the pink roads today Bobbie…..
