wandering in a world undefined, unmapped, and open to exploration or appreciation. I have lived my whole life that way. As a young child, I spent many hours just walking, or riding my bike.. nothing fancy.. 23 incher. with backpedal brakes and one gear...lol.. but went everywhere on that beast.
on the road as a young man.. hiking to Denver.. or somewhere... stopped over in chicago for two years..lol..
The point is that now at 58, I still go to the swamp and wander with my mind and heart open and let the world speak to me. Sometimes she whispers, sometimes she murmurs, sometimes she seems to scream, and always she laughs. there is such joy in the experience of life.
i wish i were not alone. the child wished this, as he careened down hills on his bicycle. The young man wished this in a corn field in Iowa. The adult wished this as he stood on stage in Washington dc waiting to compete as an adult in Irish dancing.
perhaps that is all there truly is.
