Sometimes I Wish…

Sometimes I wish I were brave enough to pack up necessary supplies and head out deep into nature and live among the trees and the animals…drink from a cool mountain stream and listen as the trees whispered encouraging words to me.

Sometimes I wish I were brave enough to stand on the highest mountain top and scream at the top of my lungs, “Enough!”

Enough hate!

Enough hurting!

Enough sadness!

Enough pain!

Sometimes I wish I were brave enough to stand against the assault of the coming storm instead of needing to hunker down and hide.

Sometimes I wish!

Sometimes I wish I were brave enough to tell that one the pain their actions are causing others. And that it’s really as simple as saying, “I’m sorry”. Or, “I forgive you!” But they don’t for whatever reason and the pain erodes a bit deeper and a bit deeper into the soul of a loved one. And it hurts!

And sometimes I wish I were brave like you. I watch you and you seem able to conquer anything that comes your way. It seems that you are able to ride the wind of storms that hit your life and always come out on top. I don’t know how you do it and I am amazed!

Sometimes I wish I was willing to throw all caution to the wind and jump! Jump and take that needed risk. But I hesitate.

Sometimes I wish I could share with you how vulnerable I feel…how open and raw! How that there are those times …like now…I long to escape the harsh realities of life and discover a slower, a softer, a less stressful side of life.

Sometimes I wish…

Ah…but this moment is ever fleeting and soon will be nothing but a mere vapor drifting on the warm updrafts lifting high over the mountains and it will be well.

Soon spring will burst forth, flowers will open up with their glorious beauty, birds will sooth my troubled soul with their chorus and the sun will bath all it touches in its golden glow.

      2. Yesterday I was busy putting on a brunch. I’ve isolated myself too much especially with this cold. Time to get around humans a little more! Though being outside down by the creek is my best go to for feelings of groundedness and wholeness. That and working in my studio which I’ve been too sick to do till now.
        Hope you found pleasure in a rainy day…

      3. A brunch sounds fun. I enjoy organizing events.
        Yesterday I worked editing the first 15 chapters if my second book. It’s fictional but based on a true story so often times brings up old dusty memories that can cause some anxiety. I’m so very thankful I’m in a safe place and am very loved now!
        And ahhh…yes…the rain!
        I so long for warmer sunshiny days!
        Hope your Sunday is a peaceful one!


      4. I admire your pluck at working on another book. That hard work continues the processing of buried memories, feelings and experiences. After holding so much in for so long it takes a long time, plus a great deal of dedication.
        Sunday was peaceful, thank you.
        Yes, please, warm, sunny days!
