I am not actually geriatric yet, despite teasing to the contrary. An acquaintance did, however, recently bring to my attention that in seven years I’ll become eligible to join the AARP!
So what’s it mean, fellow traveler?
If a life is counted as a single cycle of seasons, then I’m in early summer: all kinds of living things growing and coming to fruition.
My life lessons to date:
Build your courage.
Face down reactions to fear.
Exercise the broken places inside yourself.
Seek new internal spaces.
Expand your capacities.
Correct overshoot as soon as possible.
It’s all improv! “Yes. And…”
Strive to be gentle.
