Footnotes on the path of life….
2017 is nearing completion…
so early this morning i took the opportunity to 'review' my experiences from this time frame… & in the midst of doing this flashed back even further back to the 90's when I began using the computer, my son Lucas showed me how. It was; how to "work it" all new & exciting & a bit overwhelming…
& such an adventure! I knew it was a tool to answer questions & I had so many! I discovered a few spiritual sites, one in particular, it allowed an individual to share their story, I thought I was doing it anonymously… sending my words out to cyberspace, kinda like a prayer, between me & Creator Source
... I laugh now, realizing what one puts on the internet is always there, visible for ANY one to read or see…. I remember being so open in my sharing, allowing myself to be vulnerable… i was shocked when someone “commented” on my writing… I automatically shut down for a while ,it honestly frightened me! … course I opened again, made some VERY dear friends along the way; many who, altho we have never met in the flesh,it matters not; for the experience of our sharing so openly back & forth created a bond between us that we share to this day!
There was a time I journaled daily to rid myself of the monsters in my head… interestingly since joining social media, & sharing my stories, art, photos on~line… the monsters rarely bother me, & I find I journal in a different way these days.
I realize we each use social media in our own ways, for our own reasons, personally I realized/decided it was a wonderful opportunity to share & hold a space of love & joy, peace & harmony, a beautifull way to send healing to wherever, to whomever may require or except it!!!
And a way to To share my creativity….& so that is what I do!!!
this morning I pause, so many of my fb land friends & family have crossed over, I will miss their presence, & yet the connection is still there. Life is interesting for sure! So much change!! I know this past year of 2017 I have taken the opportunity to follow more fully my creativity, the voice of my heart & soul is ART, my path has taken me many different places, no regrets as the experiences have been healing & interesting & mostly rewarding in the sense they have made me more of myself!!!
This morning I took some time to re~visit many of the photos I shared during 2017 on my fb page
It was interesting to see all the photos I had shared, mostly my art, & nature photos.
Technology is pretty amazing for sure… a way to catalog our lives, to review at a later date...my website & blogs keep track of it all as well (although I noted I did not share there as much as in the past, something to ponder for sure!)…
these days I rarely care who sees what… I am who I am!
No hiding, not from myself, not from anyone! Symbolically, of course the years are just a way our society marks the passing of time, the flows & rhythms, the seasons, the cycles, the wheel spins ever on!!
So blessings to 2017
thank you for being present everyday! thank you for all the opportunities you offered..… thank you for the gifts & blessings you brought in, thank you for some really amazing memories.... thank you for the lessons of growth & healing as well.…i am grateful for your companionship~ there were some heavy things that took place, most importantly the dark places were lit up with light, much exposed! No more hiding!!!
i look forward to your replacement; 2018, with a sense of wonder & excitement~~ blessings to 2017 as it winds down & prepares to leave~~
warmest hugs of love, joy & goodness~
