Funny how looking back at some of my writing, i was literally urging myself
to release the constraints of things that were holding me back in life...It is really fascinating to read old entries and see where we were and where we have been and where we are. All of it leading to this moment of today and now and without that, there would be no ground to stand on. All the things that were difficult and sad, and disappointing and surprising....all the amazing life lessons that, at the time, we can't figure out. But as Steve Jobs once said in a commencement speech to Stanford grads..."We cannot connect the dots looking forward, we can only connect them looking back."
Another one written March of 2001...
beyond the fence lies the unknown.
there is a world outside of this one.
it lives and breathes regardless.
peek over the fence and smell the
breeze of simplicity and fullness.
touch the grass and give thanks
for the cool green flavor on your
toes and in between.
clamor over the fence and run
as fast as ever possible in this life
and take flight in the possibilities
fly higher than ever before and don't come back.
don't look back from whence we came
for the fence has fallen
and there are no boundaries.
love and understanding.
