Life’s been particularly whirly over the last few weeks: birthdays, new school year, finished Proposal for my dissertation, some sleepless nights, family worries, a music festival, and a “padding” battle thrown in for good measure..
There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt or die;
and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
– William Stafford (1914-1993)
These images represent some of those threads that I have been loving, caring after, pursuing, holding, appreciating, weaving, trying, learning, loosing, un/explaining, and generally holding on to. May this post finds you all holding tight to the treads that matter most in your lives..
Welcome in October!
