Where Dreams Go

by stewart

Perhaps one day all of this will make sense to me again. What used to be no longer is and cannot be again. As I experience much of what I thought important fade, I wonder what remains?

In my memories, I keep going back to a time when everything was new. I was just starting out in the world, leaving home for the first time and had the expectation of exciting things to come. I was physically strong/healthy and so many new experiences lay ahead. Working in a sleep-away summer camp, alongside a beautiful lake, part of a talented team, creating an environment for campers that was fun and varied. In the fall, off to residential college- on my own with only my thoughts and desires to answer too. There was purpose, dreams of going, doing and becoming.

Now these dreams have left me and slowly I turn my gaze to that distant world where the images are not so clear. These new dreams while very real are not easily grasped and I must work using other capacities to see them. While we are spiritual beings, the physical must step back for this perception to operate and is reluctant to do so.

Slowly, new dreams are emerging and awakening a vision, of the next place, to carry me forward.

Family Tradition

I am a Grumpy Old Man; there is no doubt about it. While I have come about this condition primarily by my own effort, I think there is an aspect of heredity/gene pool in all this. My brother has earned the title “Grumpa” bestowed by his 2 grandsons; which I have kidded him about. Also […]

And The Writing Is Good

When I first started to write, I wrote primarily for myself. There were things inside of me that needed to come out and the writing was good. As time passed, I began to expand what I wrote about and wanted to share Higher thoughts, which came through me, with others. And for a time, writing […]

Embracing the Journey: Going Beyond Pain/Suffering

How does one transcend pain/suffering, ‘embracing the journey?’ When I consider my answer to this question, I have to smile. I really don’t know if I can ‘embrace’ pain/suffering; that is, see it the same way as joy. With many shades, pain and joy are vastly different human experiences. Note, I have never been one […]

Faith & Morning Coffee

Much of life is dependent upon faith.   For example, consider setting up your morning coffee the night before: You are going on faith the machine timer will work And that you will get-up to enjoy the coffee.   Why do you believe both of these premises to be true? Because your experience tells you […]

Maintenance Activity

Years ago, when planned obsolescence was a major production factor, as a car got older it required more maintenance. Some models seemingly were always in the shop getting repaired and that prompted owners to trade and purchase a newer model. By design, less and less time was available to use the aging car to drive […]
