What does it mean, this dangling in open space? Is this freedom? Am I waiting for something? If something good is just around the corner, why then does it make me feel uneasy?
There are certain days when it seems the world has gone topsy turvy and you can’t tell which way is up, because nothing feels right, no matter which way you turn it. This mis-direction and lack of balance I am told will strengthen my own internal compass. But in the meantime, am I supposed to enjoy the weightlessness?
If I shall be strong someday then that means today I am weak; not a pretty thought. I want to run. But before I flee to avoid the truth about myself, please, be still my pounding heart, my sweaty palms, my instinct to deny…wait and look around. I am not alone.
I am with others, compatriots, fellow travelers on this path I find myself on.We all would like our feet firmly planted in the ground, but today, that is not so. We get to dangle, and jiggle, and wait and watch. In a way, we are free today! We must be patient and embrace the spot we are at, and really, with all the eyes we have available, open them up and truly see what kind of opportunity we have been given.
So that is why today, when I have nothing solid underneath me; when meanings elude me and the future retreats, shrouded in fog, I shall try to get all I can from my exclusive spot and dangle to my heart’s content. I will swing my feet up, I will swing higher and higher until I can touch the clouds.
Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
