Journalling the journey.

You won’t fully understand the human condition until your very last breath said my mother. Only then will there be total realisation. Of course, you won’t be able to tell anyone what you learnt in those last moments.

And so the story of humanity goes on. Keep learning, even when everyone around you has stopped.

Write everything you witness, hear, see. Keep that journal going. I want everyone who can,  to do this. It’s important, especially if you believe in human rights, in Mother Earth and all  her little babies.

Write and the world writes with you. If they stop, it’s your duty to keep going. It’s another new year, therefore another new start. There’s always a new opportunity to do what you said you would.

The Rooster is the dawn announcer. It can discern what is coming. Happy Chinese New Year….


Change and see who disappears

It’s a tough line to take, but I have. It does mean some friendships end. And so it goes. I think it’s taken me five decades plus one or two life events to learn that I am not someone who can keep the same relationships going, listen to the same dramas, deal with the same stuff – mine and others’.

When you choose to bow out, it’s a bit like taking a walk alone in the woods at night. You think there’s no one around. Then you begin to notice everything else that you’ve missed out on, for years.

It is with some heart-felt sadness that I have let some people go and the F.U. response says it all. I will keep letting go and allowing new people in my life. I won’t hide from the world, I am willing to take risks with new friendships, but…

Sometimes habits evolve around playing out the same scenarios, the same play. But ‘kin norah, life’s too short.
