Life is full of beauty and interruptions,
spontaneous and planned,
heart break and hiccups,
highs and lows,
quietness and noise,
exhaustion and vitality,
darkness and light,
struggle and surrender,
. . . few chose it.
The ones who do are wild and free.
What I have learned in the Wilderness (W) this year:
W simplifies my extraordinarily sophisticated life.
Companionship along the way is a pleasant distraction and necessity.
It doesn’t have to be easy to be thoroughly satisfying.
W makes the rest of life seem dull at times.
The taste of the W continues to tug me back.
You’ll get dirty.
It’ll get dark, real dark.
The sun will rise.
The stars will shine.
There is a Creator of all things.
I was made for W Living.
I am a woman of emotion. I will cry as automatically as I breathe in the W.
The outcome is always more than familiar.
I am a finisher.
