Onwards, beyond words


The plan was to post about the witticisms and evolution of slang and lingo. It was to be garnished with a picture of a silhouette. Instead it became something other, something else, because of two people.

I posted last about what we are told to be and who we really are, in part, the meaning of this journey. It's a constant exploration and interest and I am so pleased with your lovely and personal comments, thank you.
Lisa, your compliment was extraordinary. As is her dripping with charm blog, A Bloomsbury Life which also recently contained a picture of a silhouette (book cover); thus my change of mind on using a similar image.

The photographs you see are from my camera-fuelled voyage through Morocco, a truly amazing experience as much as a place. This was alluded to in the “Retour” post. I might just have to punctuate a season of posts with the pictures I took there.

I then read this comment from setyourselfonfire, who after reading the post decided to change her career course:


“I've just had the realisation about living my dreams. I've always chosen more practical things for the reason of being financially stable. But i've realised I can't do that any more because i don't put my all into the practical things because it's never something i'm passionate about. I've just made the choice to quit my job and follow my heart. I'm excited.”

Immediately, I had to get up and walk around. Then sit back down again.


I am pondering and processing what our hearts and our minds can do, when they spell out that meeting truthfully. Astounded; everything we say and do can release small ripples that grow in ways we have no idea of. That comment felt like the splash of a wave, coming back after I threw a pebble out to sea. I don't know what your life will be like, I just hope it will be beautiful. Sending out my prayers and love to everyone.

Peace,
x

We so often become so set on looking forward that we must take a moment to reflect the now and the reason for meaning in the beyond.

I like thinking of words like waves...especially good, inspiring ones!

I have to admit that I am puzzled about what our minds and hearts can do and how to reconcile that with the world's reaction or the lack thereof sometimes...I'd love to hear your thoughts on that :)

I think I need to read this post again, many times. It's touched me deeply in the way that ripples do and I need to ponder on that :)

Thanks for sharing

Meg said...

I'm in a bit of a similar position. I'm not sure whether to follow my head or my heart. I think my heart might be slowly winning.

I am so happy that you found your way to my blog bc it led me here. thank you so much for your kind comment...I really appreciate it. I have to say that I relate so much to your blog and your words. I started my "new" life almost two years ago and I've never been happier. It's amazing what being happy professionally can do. I realized I was focused on all the wrong things.
Your photos are lovely...so moving and evocative. I can't wait to see and read more.
