These hands separately

Are just our hands.

Together………….. gently … they become the bowl that holds our life.

The treasures collected…………… the special moments

Those memorable events……………… like watching you sleep, then wake…..

Each triumph over the mundane, the petty, the insignificant……..

And over time, this bowl will fill with these – the gems of our life

 They will – in their turn – create an alchemy that feeds us, inspires and expands…. Us

The eagle will watch over this – our precious bowl

Our hands together………………. Our Life

and protect it like the lost tribe of David

Reminding us with its haunting cry

to follow our united vision of a larger grace

Beyond an immediate horizon…………….

Celebrating an Aimless Wanderer…..

DSCN2705

“She Lives by her own definition and will not compromise that – not even for the illusion of belonging.

I dedicate this to an extraordinary woman who lives by example and compels us all to see the world through new eyes.

By the time you read this she will be traveling the world where I know she will find new and inspiring ideas, amazing cultures, vistas – the lonely and the crowded, history, art, music, food, people, philosophy – possibility.  And in that way that is only her – that crazy thing she does – she will make something happen.  Some alchemy that leaves the world a better place.

I’ve heard her called a quitter –

“An Aimless Wanderer”

But not all who wander are aimless….

Especially not those who seek Truth

Beyond Tradition,

                Beyond Definition,

                                             Beyond the Image”
