Even though much of my work is literally TOO BIG FOR WORDS, occasionally I am inspired to write, and this is the place for that. Feel free to join in the conversation. Thanks for reading.
Fireworks flash, lighting the holiday sky!
I pause, applause, and that moment of Awe
Quickly flashes by…
At the midpoint
This flashpoint reminds me to
Be. Here. Now.
At the midpoint,
I slow, sip and savor
This season that will never be again.
Eyes. Wide. Open.
I see, I blink, another moment comes.
And then another.
I will never be 49 in Chicago on July 4th again. This is clear. Every day of Summer 2014 has been a collection of moments, conversations, with people, on topics that are uniquely unrepeatable. Eyes wide open, I am aware, awake and eager to soak up all that is Summer and this season of my life. Three holidays punctuate this season. This is the second. We still have time to savor, sip and slow to the speed of this season. Life is pretty awesome, isn’t it?!
