Because when I think of it, when I look back and review the year- I realize that it has been such a festive year. 2010 has been good to me so far. My life as I know it has ended, but with endings, come new beginnings.
New beginnings that are so full of possibility, and choice, and light, and just all things positive and optimistic. Beginnings are so fresh. And it is that thought, that very thought, that makes me go through the endings-the goodbyes-with an accepting heart.
Oh, how I want a real Autumn, one when leaves fall off their trees- with smiles on their faces- because they are going to a better place, a place full of joy and glee and echoes of laughter. The sounds of dry leaves under the feet of children and couples and best friends, warming their hearts and liberating their souls. But our Autumn is still such a beautiful one- because I can still go to the beach and I am so looking forward to it. Red Sea, I miss you!
yes, I had you in mind as I wrote this.
