Journey Into 2010
This journey we're all on. I've been listening to the dramas that have crept into our holidays, and reading the dramas that visited my fellow blog-and-Facebook friends; and it's somehow reassuring that we are not alone. It's heartening to see we are actually so very much, ONE. I like that. I used to say the Earth is my home and humanity is my family. Sometimes it becomes too much to bear, having a family so big and feeling all their pain and suffering, but it also is fun to celebrate their joys and laugh at the absurdities and foibles of the human condition that simply make the trip so worthwhile.
I look forward to traveling this road with you in my life, one step into one day at a time. No matter what lies ahead for all of us, I am here with you and love that you are here with me. Together this journey will be won. Why do I keep picturing The Fellowship of the Ring, with Frodo and Sam and Legolas and Aragorn, Gimli, Gandalf, Merry and Pipin, and Boromir? I'm not sure, since I prefer the visual of the traveling gnome much better--it's lighthearted and funny. And if I have any resolutions this year it's to lighten up and laugh more. To really appreciate the human condition. What a brave lot we all are. And what fun.
So thank you 2009 for the gifts you left, and welcome 2010 for the gifts yet to be shared.
What say you, is your passport current?
