Ok so I leave tomorrow and first of all I want to thank all of my friends and family that have wished me well on this journey. It is truly a humbling experience to have heard from so many of you and some that I haven’t spoken to in many many years.
I was thinking about that last night – how time and life has separated us and lucky I feel to know each and every one of you. We have shared a common point in our lives. One that can’t be recreated and interestingly enough one that will never be forgotten. I have been thinking (remembering) how every person I meet lives and is loved inside of me. Is that what being a human is about – moving forward in our lives; while all the time participating in the collection of memories?
I have been told on several occasions how brave I am to go on this journey. I want to state for the record that I am scared – shitless. I have often wondered what was I thinking. However life requires us to make choices – to stand still or move forward. For me standing still was no longer an option. I need to meet life out there – where life happens. To embrace all that is offered and leave a piece of me here when I go. To me that is not courage; it’s the opposite it’s giving in and allowing. Allowing it all to just flow – to me and from me – to be one with it all. I will bring each and every one of your on this journey – for in many ways- I walk for us all. ¡Buen Camino!
