As all roads eventually lead to somewhere, I keep putting one foot of front of the other, very determined to finally arrive, at the place I was always meant to be. It has taken me an arduous amount of time to finally get all of this, but that is okay, the final arrival of me was worth the travel. It was the matter of terminating and relinquishing my "no" place for my "yes" place that has brought to me new life. The beauty of loosing, and then finding myself, I think is what happens after you have traveled to the dark side of the moon
This morning I went for an early run, and I tasted the wind as it blew, I heard something in the silence, no longer scared by it, or in being alone with it, I held onto the stillness in me.
The sculpture of me was always there, it was the chiseling away of the rock to get to the sculpture that took time to reveal it, as my life is now, a completed sentence. I think the biggest decision of my life, was finally allowing me to be me. What an incredibly awesome idea that was of mine, which only took me half a lifetime to come up with. Wow, talk about a work in progress!
Book Expo America was an eye-popping experience, as I have come to the realization now that there are actually more than a zillion authors in this world from every walk of life. It was very educating, and my shoulders grew stronger from carrying my shoulder briefcase and laptop, and then added green bags full of book giveaways. I grew taller from pressing shoulder to shoulder amongst the interlude of other authors, my legs grew stronger too yesterday, as I walked from the Jacob Javets Center to Grand Central Station at the end of the day...stopped at a favorite watering hole to quench my thirst, then treaded onward....yup, you go girl!!
