A Beautiful Life Tapestry

Amost three months have traveled their way through my life, since I arrived here in Port Elizabeth, South Africa…and interwoven among those threads of time… almost every conceivable emotion that a human is capable of…anxiety, awkwardness, excitement, joy, nostolgia, romance and love, sympathy, confusion, aesthetic appreciation, fear, despair…and innumerable others…

I have traveled and even lived in different places within the beautiful world we reside on…but this time it is different…I am changing in profound and enigmatic ways…and I know within the depth of my soul that I will never be the same again…

The warm thoughts of this beautiful country and the incredible life that I am now living…with the delightful and lovable Mr. P… is counterbalanced with the knowledge of all the things that I am missing…the parties…the Holidays…my awesome family…granddaughters growing and changing… life is going on without me…and their lives are changing…they will become different people…and so will I…

That is a dark thread…that sadness that will become a part of my richly woven tapestry…interspersed among the resplendent colors of my new life…I do not yet see the whole design…I know that the dark will magically intersperse with the light…leaving a unique composition that will be my singular Masterpiece…yet, only a piece in the great measureless, collective canvas of universal life…

Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury
