It's been awhile since I've posted here. October was one heck of a difficult month for me. We lost two very dearly loved friends inside of three weeks to cancer and marked the absence of another we loved who went before. Quite frankly, it knocked me on my rear end for awhile. I think a lot about faith, and friends, and where we're going when we leave this world, at times like this. I also think about what it is, I will leave behind me when I do. What kind of mark I will have made and who it will matter to. Do you?
I'm sorta crazy about this image. It represents many things to me. For once, I will keep those things private because truly, it's one of those shots I like best as it means so many different things to so many different people and I've always considered that a welcome thing. I don't want to influence that creative thinking in any way at all. I will tell you though, that it was taken in the Aquarium at the Atlantis Resort, in the Bahamas. I love wandering into places like this that inspire me to think on a way different level.
My own personal journal...this blog, will remain. So much of my heart is here, even as I long to explore other worlds and reach toward new and different horizons. I'd like to bring some of those back to you sometimes, if you don't mind. But really, most of the content here, will be from the deepest part of my heart. I hope it makes a difference out there somehow.
The world is a different place today. Our kids are communicating electronically more and more and technology is growing at a pace that leaves me utterly breathless. I can only imagine the wonders they will see. I want to embrace that, in the best possible way and share it responsibly and well.
"She had no idea how it happened...only that it did. All she needed in order to reach it, was to read it. Where once, there was only a hole, black and ominous...not a star to be seen, now...another universe, infinite in its luminous possibilities.
She would go there."
This is Roni, Star Date November 14th, 2011. There's a lot of noise out there, but there is quiet too. You just have to be still enough, for long enough..to hear it.
