It seems like forever, the last time I was around here, doesn’t it? I’m grateful to those who are patient enough to let me get through what seems to be a blackout of sorts. It only makes sense, I think, to stop writing rather than post a bunch of worthless junk, just for the sake of posting.
But here I am today! Oh yes, happy new year to all! I’d like to take things one day at a time and start over fresh. Or something like that. I want to be able to capture the sincerity I’ve always attempted to achieve in my words. Though these days, it seems like I’ve been reminiscing a lot about the past. Could this be that the past has been haunting me! Geez, I hope not. But I do have a wonderful past that I’m very grateful for. A past that made me the person I am today. And I think it’s worth visiting.
One frozen moment at a time.
Yesterday, I was cleaning up some here in the house when I happen to dig up some old pictures from years past (that was before we stored them in hard drives). I was going through a lot of them and next thing you know, I get a cramp from having sat on the floor for a few hours straight. But they put a smile on my face and made me realize how lucky I am to have been blessed with a good life. To have gone through places, relationships, and even some hard times. They’re all wonderful, I think. And worth looking at, from time to time. I can’t remember the last time I flipped through my old photos. But today, I wish to revisit some of them on a regular basis. And share the memories with you.
But I do have to scan them first, don’t I? Hang tight…
(Goes to Office Depot to get a cheap scanner.)
Okay, I’m back. Hmmm, let’s see. Oh, here’s a good one to start… a picture of me on the edge of a cliff.
This was taken in the summer of 2000. A few of my friends and I went out to the Grand Canyon in Arizona for a little spiritual retreat. Here I am, looking so incredibly confident even when in fact, I did decide not to take that leap of faith, after all! Good idea, maybe. However, I remember how rejuvenating it was, not only to stand on the edge of a cliff that goes thousands of feet down below, but to savor the utter beauty of nature and life, as well.
I may not be going back to the Grand Canyon anytime soon, but I would love to revisit the feeling of having seen its awe and majesty. That feeling of possibility. And eternity.
It does good to the soul, I tell ya!

I think taking breaks is part of living so I hope you did you some good and welcome back!
okay, I mistype as usual, I meant – I hope the break did you some good or at least give you some space to ponder life or something like that
YAY! It’s so good to have you back. I understand completely about needing to have the break, but I did miss you.
I would absolutely love to go to the Grand Canyon. That is a spectacular shot. I’m glad you didn’t take the leap of faith too!
It has made my day to hear from you and know you are OK. Brilliant!
So good to see you again Chris! And you are soooo right about waiting to have something worthwhile to post about. When blogging gets to be just an exercise in filling in a post window, someone is in big trouble. 😉
Wishing you a wonderful New Year. DOn’t be a stranger, ya’ll come back now, ya hear!!!!

Sometimes we have a lot to say, sometimes we don’t.
The earth’s majesty has a spirituality to it that is at once humbling and rejuvenating…
