Contemplation

http://dailypost.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/photo-jun-05-10-40-37-pm.jpg The blue grey distant sky, the mountainous boulder upon which I squat and the ocean slapping the rocks below give me perspective. With life experiences ranging in color and emotion from charcoal grey to summer pinks and yellow; Who am I? Where am I going?

After losing my parents to divorce and later death, I changed. Or perhaps I returned. A shift in my position has occurred but clarity remains wistfully, a step ahead. The afternoon tides smash the natural rock forming seawall with fierce intensity. Nature has the momentary capacity to ground me.

Humans and earthly formations yield to the pressure of forces and strength. From within and without. What we are made of and from will change our response to the force. The ultimate look may appear similar but the erosion and patterning are unique. Hold tight onto you, stoically and protectively. If for no other reason than, like a painting finished, to see how it turns out.

About wendykarasin

I am complicated and seeking - joy and sorrow, country and city, competition and cooperation. After behavior of a gregarious nature, I require down time to refuel. My loves are children, family, friends, reading, writing, blogging, fitness, and health. I feel most alive when I stay true to my core values. Beauty makes me happy, pain helps me grow.

    I love the imagery and the comparison of life to nature. “Hold tight onto you, stoically and protectively. If for no other reason than, like a painting finished, to see how it turns out” Love it! Great post!

    Love the flow of the words and how you embrace bleak sentiment in a strong way to pass through it.
