August is always a month of reflection for me. It’s probably because one of the biggest losses of my life happened in this month many years ago. I start off the month trying not be to sad, grasping at every happy moment and holding on to it for dear life!
August for me is the beginning and ending of many things. It is the beginning of the end of summer. It is the beginning of some of the hottest, humid days in Pennsylvania. It is the ending of a precious life and memory of a sad time. It is the beginning of constant healing and the joyous memories that will never leave me. Sharon, my dearest sister, there isn’t a day that I don’t remember how your bubbly life “sailed” out of mine and I hold on to the joyous sweet time that was ours.
Life is and always will be a magical endeavor, we are created briefly like an effervescent bubble. With many stops and starts we blow into a wonderful beautiful bubble that floats in the air and flits into the distant. Sometimes we see it pop immediately and other times it is carried on the wind, much like a “Sail“.
So this is my image for this week. A sage creating bubbles of life that “Sail” on their own journey becoming the various aspects of life, people, places, things. It is a beginning and an ending.
Continue to “Sail” because all endings mark the beginning of some infinite state of being.
