"Come out come out where ever you are!" I know that's what it seems like when a blogger doesn't blog for weeks or even months. After contributing, for better or worse, to this open forum of idea's, suggestions, and stimulating rhetoric for months at a time, then abrupt absence. What happened? Car accident? too much work? failing health-physical or mental? Needed a break? Tired of writing?
How about All of the above!
Life has a way of catching up with you when you least expect it. Like a child growing up in a discombobulated environment, no matter how good it gets you're always waiting for the other shoe to come crashing down, as if it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. Come on, bring it on, lets just get it over with.
Ever been in a tug of war when the opposing side is much bigger and stronger? Grab tighter, encourage louder, strain longer believing that will alone can manufacture a miracle... Sometimes it works! Sometimes it doesn't. Well, I'm somewhere in the middle of does and doesn't right now. Hold the line, preserve strength until the opportune moment, stay focused, wait, wait. Look for that glimpse of weakness. It only shows itself for a split second. BANG! "HEAVE" Pulling in unison with frightening precision, seising the moment turning meek into monster. Please give me the strength to make this happen, who ever you are up there!!
Wow, I really miss blogging. I'm feeling much better already. I could have paid someone to tell me what was bothering me or maybe cried on someone's shoulder. No, this worked out much better. I'm still in the middle but I'm a tad bit clearer on what must be done. Resolve is the key ingredient now and for the foreseen future. Hunker down, look for the opening or off angel. Ponder scenario's that could lead, one step after another, to light at the end of the tunnel. A magnificent game of heightened awareness if embraced and accepted instead of feared and threatened.Keep cool under fire, yea, thats it, settle in and relish in the moment. Sink or swim, feast or famine. C'mon you can do it!!!
