Shadow Dancing

Greetings from the icy tundra. Winter seems to be dragging on and on for many of us. It might not seem like it, but spring really is just around the corner:

"Winter's cold spring erases
And the calm away by the storm is chasin
Everything good needs replacing"

Sometimes The Way Is Clear

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Often, we can experience obstacles along the way on our journey. Sometimes the journey doesn't make sense and life can seem confusing. But then, sometimes, the way is clear.

The journey may require much waiting or much work; much care, attention and thoughtfulness. We go through wonderings and wanderings. We may feel lost, but we are not.

And then when all is said and done, and we enter into a new chapter, turn down a new road, we realize our soul knew all along even if it seemed it didn't.

How do you tell the story of who you are?
