We have to let go of the life we planned…And accept the one that is waiting for us.
– Joseph Campbell
Just before the new year rang in, I began mapping out (and writing down) my plans for it.
Right after the holiday, things took off to a swimming start in the direction I envisioned. Accompanied with a heady feeling, they were happening at lightning-bolt speed.
Thirty days later, I’ve been mulling over the above quote for a while now. Perhaps what I seek out there is smack in front of me. I’ve either set my sights above it or I’d rather not acknowledge it.
A three -course meal for deep introspection. Food for thought.
In other news, my reading is still on the back burner as I have spent most of the month fleshing out ideas for a new writing path ( while chasing external illusions).
January saw me begin a fast! I haven’t done that in eons. It was billed to last for 21 days but was truncated on the 10th after I slipped on the stairs, slamming my neck, spine and behind hard on concrete.
No worries. Nothing’s broken. Just had a lot of pain for a lot of time. I’m back to my healthy self.
I trust your January was a good one too.
See ya next month!
