A Long Walk

A long walk.

There’s something about a day spent walking that brings thoughts to me. A day spent walking feels like a day that stretches as long as the distance is far. It is where the twists and turns that the path reveals with each step feel like those in which life takes you on each and every day. Have you ever wondered how they often seem alike to you?

How a straight path guides you to what you can see clearly and safely up ahead. How one that twists and turns can make you dizzy with wonder at what’s in front of you. How sudden a corner can creep up to you and is there before you even know it. What’s more is the corner in which forks in two directions before you’ve even decided. And what to do with those paths that end with what seemingly feels like nowhere else to go. But i think what’s most unsettling, are those that lead you back to where you began, as if you’d never left the place you stand; but the night falls still, none a wiser to where you’d hoped to go.

There’s something about a day spent walking that brings thoughts to me. How i wonder so often where the path will take me.

Treasures

It’s interesting what you choose to keep when packing up your whole life.

Rummaging through all this stuff you’ve collected over the years, stuff that just sits there and brings you no joy and no memories.

But then there are those rare moments where through the shadows of all this stuff, you see something that looks and feels like it’s alive. It talks to you not through sound but directly to your heart. “How can this be possible” you ask, and as you hold it in your very hands, you now understand how it can be so; and so you bring it up against your heart, almost as if not to lose something that has always been with you from the very beginning.
