It is true we all begin our journey in the darkness, in the womb of our mothers. We leave its safety and burst forth into the light and the world with a grand wailing. I am feeling it is how we enter each new venture. It is with trepidation and delight – like a child screaming going down a water slide. Oh the fear and exhilaration! Let me not lose either.
I feel the safety wrapped in the arms of darkness, feeling the closeness of my neighbours’ prescence around the campfire. The stars come one by one. The flames crackle and leap. The wine is poured. The conversations begin. Slowly the barriers recede. We recognize each other. I look up into the night sky. It is alive with stars winking and twinkling down upon us.
