This realization comes at an interesting time, for I feel as if I want to shout from the hilltops … scream, really. Just scream, then walk way. Far away.
Instead, I will stay "where I am" and hold the scream closely with as much love as I can muster, and we will nurture relationship, intimacy and will get to know one another well - right here "where we are" before making any move.
I don't look forward to it. And yet, I do. And I am grateful that the first few days of this path will meander in a tame wilderness, in Nature, amid forest and meadow, water and stone, shadow and reflection, solitude and friendship. In Challenge and Love.
