With deepest rigor
I am always seeking growth
Autumn leaves still fall
Now I grow weary
Of fixing autocorrect
And its bad choices

A morning journey
Off to the nearby island
With people I love
Spent the morning over in Whidbey Island watching a cross country regional competition. I’ve known many of these kids their whole lives, so there a certain poignancy.

Sleep continues its demands
I cannot resist
I find myself doubting my past, second guessing my choices. This quote, this proverb reminds me of the pointlessness of that behavior. That I need to keep my eyes in the now, on the future. And so I get up and move forward.
In today’s cold fog
Sunlight never reached the ground
I feel fear’s cold edge
Darkness descending early
Wearing my wool clothes
Autumn’s presence now permeates the air. Leaves fall with vigor.
Life is beautiful
Yet also cruelly brutal
I feel winter’s edge
The strange dichotomies of life. Finding beauty with the deep sadness upon friend’s wings. At times I feel an awkward wonder at what our heart’s hold at the same time.
I struggle to see
That “not losing” and “winning”
Are not the same thing
I’ve been working on myself lately. Adjusting my.mind, embracing the possibilities, and releasing all the fears lurking within, holding me back.
