A new season
As the sun descends on Labour day I can’t help but ignore a feeling of change. In previous years, this last long weekend of summer brought out nostalgia in me. But this year is different. It may be due to the sweltering heat we had this weekend. Or, because I’m ready for a new season.
So much has happened in the last 2-3 weeks that has shaken my entire foundation. Some things started out small and ended up in major revelations, other things started with a roaring thunder, raging winds and rain falls and eventually settled into a serene calm.
One of the things I’ve learnt in the last weeks is to focus my eyes on the horizon. The horizon changes slowly, it gives us peace, stability and ample time to prepare what is to come. Especially in our fast changing immediate environment it seems to be the only way to remain calm – and sane – as life keeps bumping into us. I suggest you try it in the next week (not while driving); as you walk down streets or in parks, look for the furthest point you can see. Keep doing that and watch your view change.
Oh and to Tash: Happy Birthday Girl! May this year bring some more hard earned wisdom .
