Welcome springtime! The Sun enters Aries this morning. Ecstasy, one of my favorite Maxfield Parrish paintings, has hung in my home for twenty years. When I bought it, I was in the midst of a steep and exhausting climb up a mountain of self discovery and spiritual awakening. Ecstasy evoked hope during those dark days and pointed to the only outcome I was willing to entertain. And then one day spring returned…
A few years ago I wrote this piece that seems just right for today.
My tracks are faint now, fading with the sands of time. As I step into this new phase the path shifts direction. The long trek up the mountain well worth every challenging step.
From here, I can see forever. From here, I can easily fly. From here, I can be seen and heard. I’m strong enough now and ready. My journey has taught me to release the heavy baggage. I don’t need it anymore. I learned to look gravity in the eye and defy it rather than allowing it to define me.
I’m free now to delight in life and make some fresh tracks. Or take to the sky and fly.
