It is the last day of August and last day for AugustMoon 2015. It has been a wonderful few weeks of writing. These weeks of reflection have given me rest and pause to see with more clarity into the world and life as it is. I am surrounded by sunlight streaming through the woods as I sit here tap, tapping on my keyboard. I am happy and at ease.
We had a super moon last night coming home from our friends’ house in the woods. In light of the full moon, our path was lit. It was easy to take a step without stumbling over roots and such. The trick in life is taking a step forward in the dark, not knowing what lies ahead.
But if you can suck it in and take that bold first step, it gets easier. Your eyes get accustomed to the dark. You lose some of the fear. You can relax a little. Your shoulders come down and you can breathe. You can think. You might find that there is nothing to be afraid of. There are no boogey men or demons behind every tree. It’s only your shadow. I have learned to take that bold first step. It was terrifying and exhilarating like riding the roller coaster at the fair. It is very worth the ride.
