Astonishingly, it’s the end of January. If I hadn’t been counting the days off one by one, writing a new musing every day, I wouldn’t have believed it. Zoom, one month gone. It’s blowing away, here in this neck of the woods. After a day of wildly unseasonable warmth, the temps are dropping and the branches are whipping around. I saw a poor misguided earthworm last night who was pretty sorry about the torrential downpour and going to be even more upset about the temperature drop. The Worm Moon isn’t due until the end of month… that’s when the soil’s supposed to warm enough for them to come out again.
I’ve had the quote from Helen Keller open on my computer for quite a while waiting for a chance to use it. It seemed right. We are meant to dream out loud and in color. We are meant to take those dreams and make them real.
It’s not just that the world needs our dreams of Peace, because they do. It’s because we need to dream and to make our dreams come true. It fulfills us. It allows us to live our lives to the very edges. We are invited to become explorers in our own lives. Another great quote, this one from Earl Nightingale, a motivational speaker and spoken word artist, showed up (don’tcha just love the Universe?), “Don’t give up on a dream, just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” And won’t it just? Why not be the best you? The best you is the one that’s having fun!
