It started here...many years ago,in the light of the moon.
The Journey by Mary Oliver
"One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice
though the whole
house began to tremble
and you felt the old tug at your
ankles.."Mend my life!"each voice cried.But you didn't stop.You
knew what you had to do,though the wind pried with its stiff
fingers at the very foundations,
though their melancholy was
terrible.It was already late enough, and a wild night,and the road
full of fallen branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left
their voices behind,
the stars began to burn through the sheets of
clouds,and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your
own,that kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the
world,determined to do the only thing you could do, determined to
save the only life you could save."
I had to be begin, even with the fear. I had to slowly spread my wings and see where the wind would carry me...
...and even though I was afraid, and I continue to be afraid, I am still dedicated to following what my heart tells me.
