WAKE ME UP

i'm done.
i do not think this in exasperation
but in a breath.
because with every ending
with every goodbye
is the wide open door of new
(and how it's needed, this blessed new beginning)

a thought occurs to me at a low spot and slams into my dreams of freedom, bursting them to shards of broken glass. inside my heart, this girl sits in a puddle, wraps her arms around her knees and resists heavily.
but my hands are on the wheel so i take the long way to the house
(it gives me time to think /  time to watch the clouds)

rest easy / breathe deep / rub your eyes and

w a k e   u p

HI HELLO
this is a new space for me.
starting over/breathing deep/smiling with my face to the light.
it's good to be back :)))))

  11. Wow, your words, your photos....so gorgeous. A still, victorious moment. I can totally relate to the much needed re-start. Something fresh. Love the way you described this, especially this line:

    "But my hands are on the wheel so i take the long way to the house
    (it gives me time to think / time to watch the clouds)"

    Sounds like a lyric. :) Welcome back! Can't wait to see what creativity finds its way to this space.
