"Bursting With Individuality"
:A Unique Fall Leaf ~ Manhattan Beach ~ October 2009:
It is so easy to focus on things that hurt us. The evil pain,
the desperate despair. It squawks so loudly. But if you tune
yourself in to listen to other, softer voices, you can set
yourself up for eye opening good times, you can make the
choice to find the flower that drifts from a tree and lands
on your windshield, to notice the butterfly that holds itself
in the wind on its way to freedom. To feel the perfect crunch
of grass on a dew filled morning. To bend down to pick up
that unique fall leaf that bursts with its own individuality.
Pain and despair and turmoil and laughs and joy and
exhilaration live side by side and coexist at glorious times
across our timelines. Get comfortable with all; know they are
meant to speak to you, that everything is a gift, and you are
stepping toward freedom by seeing across a wider canvas.
