been challenged to learn new things...
some would call it a "bucket list,"
for some reason, not fond of that term
(may be cause I didn't see the movie)
A part of reinventing myself
because it was a birthday
that ended in a zero?
Determined to take on the big fears...
steering the canoe, hula hooping
(granted, a minor accomplishment
but still?) Swahili
(in case I make it to Kenya soon)
and most recently drumming.
(Why is this a fear?
that story soon.)
Much of which seems to be about
In studying the Tao
these fall turned mornings
on my patio...
rhythm, is the common theme
and such a struggle for my
feet, hips, hands, my ...
Okay, my everything!
Looks like what I am
trying to learn is all about rhythm!
Metaphor for life?
"life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
it's learning how to dance in the rain"
When this one came to me
I pondered what others I could
come up with...like
"Life is not waiting for the life boat to come
its learning to float in the tide"
Or this one...
Life isn't about learning how to play "that beat"
but listening to your own drum!
"Life is not about digging up the roots
but believing in the tree
Okay, that one was kind of lame
but I really wanted to use
this super cool picture of the
root face and...sigh!
Anyone have a better one...
What's your metaphor
