A new beginning

1200px-The_great_dividing_range.jpgBeginnings are frightening.  Gloriously, joyfully, frightening. A little over a week ago, I wrote about how hope is temporary. (Link posted below.)
Well, here’s an update. I have my new beginning. I am venturing out into the great unknown. I am at the precipice of one path and preparing to jump the Great Divide. I should be more afraid. It would be smart to be more afraid. Because, fear is a great teacher. It makes you cautious of the unknown and attentive to your ignorance. I am new in my new beginning. Things of the past are merely pebbles in the fish tank and I am jumping into the ocean.
Hope fails if temporary. My hope, however, was eternal and invested in a higher power. My now and His Now aren’t always aligned. My now is driven by my ambition and desires; His Now is the only When. I am grateful for the opportunity before me and even more grateful for the ones I have had. So, here at this precipice, I’m not afraid of the height or the distance I must leap. I’m just going to enjoy the view.

Playing in the Background

I hear a song and get forever lost in memories. Music is often playing in the background as I go through the day in automatic; and it often reminds me of ordinary life events. Today, a song took me back to a middle school dance. I remembered nervously laughing as a boy failingly asked me to dance. I don’t remember dancing and I don’t remember the boy, but I do remember that weird feeling and the song. Music is an emotional and chemical mental scrapbooker. Like turning the page, it never fails to bring me back to a nostalgic moment once lost in my memory.
