Learning Along the Way


I learned a couple of things today. First that I often have quite profound thoughts and think – wow that´s pretty good and in the next second I see something that takes away my attention and then completely for the great peace around the world thought. AHH getting older is not for wimps. The second thing I learned is about hand holding.

To me whenever I thought about holding someone´s hand or someone holding mine I always thought of the phrase as a way to help me. Like there was a holder and holdee. One above or below the other. However along the path I learned that when 2 hands met it was a coming together, a kind of ebb and flow of spirit. Each hand was both giving and receiving. Each hand sharing in the experience of the touch, of the exchange of energy. Each hand reaching through the abyss to form the most perfect union. Neither one more, neither one less. Then to see the hands of a child and parent touch it was magic! To me this is a very human and intimate experience to hold someone´s hand and to have them hold mine.

Note: The pack and I are making peace with each other. We are learning to get along by understanding that neither can move forward down the path without each other.. HA!
