There are moments in our lives, crossroads in our path, that when we reach them we know we need to cross, to change, and sometimes, to leave. Other times, the road ahead twists and is full of blind curves we can’t make out ahead of time. Every step we take we feel as if we are blindfolded and spun in circles dizzy. We grasp at anything we can to tether us to reality. We hold tight to those we’ve chosen to be in our lives. We anchor ourselves to love.
We build an illusion. We create our own kingdom. We scratch out a story in the dirt, hoping it sticks, even when the forecast is for high winds and rain.
“Rulers make bad lovers,
you better put your kingdom up for sale.”
“Gold Dust Woman” by Fleetwood Mac
from the album, Rumours (1977)
Song Of The Day – March 11, 2011
In this self-chained existence we rarely see the signposts ahead, and we rarely recognize when it is time to hit the road, and go.
