Time away, yet messages and thoughts always lingered

Many months have passed since this writer has shared reflections of what’s held deep inside.  My life’s journey continued to take me forward, sometimes in desired directions, sometimes not.  Clear, joyful days where mixed with days of doubt and disappointment.  But that is what life offers, contrasting days assembled into our story.  And along the way, we travel the journey knowing the road is paved with solid ground, rocks and potholes.

For me, the space and distance from writing seemed needed.  And though the yearnings to “write” and share through this blog faded over these recent wanderings, messages and thoughts within me arose and lingered.  A collection of my mental stories reflecting feelings sparked by my “thinking” … my living life … my “feeling” feelings … and my relationships with the planet and those standing on it.  Observations about the “why” of life blended knowingly by simply accepting what is.  And the time and distance … away from writing … now seems to be “enough”.  Enough space for breathing … enough time for wandering, reflecting, but not sharing.

I’ve learned to listen to my inner voice, so I now “pick up the pen” and once again write.  Write for myself and for the feelings created as I set my inner thoughts free.   Feelings spawned from expressing thoughts from within me, knowing time continues to dance across the face of my life’s clock.

And it is time moving at an ever quicker pace that whispers to me to once again write and feel.  Blend these cherished acts into my moments.  As stated so well by one out among the stars (at least in our imaginations) …

“Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey.  It reminds us to cherish each moment because it will never come again.  What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.” – Captain Jean-Luc Picard, from the file “Star Trek Generations”

It all feels “right” in this moment, and fully living in each of my moments is a song I hum as often as possible these days.  So I once again “hum” my song of written words …
