The blog has been terribly neglected lately. Partially because it needs a bit of an overhaul, partially because I have been busy doing things other than being on the computer, and partially because I've been in limbo about where I'm at, where I'm going and what I'm willing to share with the big world. Regardless of any of that, I miss my little space on the internets....it's a creative endevour that will be here and is entirely capable of growing and changing as I do.
So, without further ado, today I want to share the following quote which sums up perfectly what I'm about today, along with so many wonderful friends.
I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know - unless it be to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide. Most of all we love and want to be loved. We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls; that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to prove ourselves to another or compete for love. For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers, for lonely men and women who dare to ask of life everything good and beautiful. It is for those who are too gentle to live among wolves.
gratitude: for a place to go and a person to call when i need out of my head even for a short while.
