FInding Our Way ~ a Final Post




Seeking clarity – truth – trust – integrity – respect – honesty – authenticity – honor – community – gifting – resilience. FInding our way. Knowing when to step forward, offering a hand or insight – and when to step back, preserving strength for another time, moving into another space, still giving, but in a new way. There is forever much to give and much to learn, to answer need when you can, and to know your limitations and boundaries as well as you try to know those of others. Look: see. Listen: hear. Believe,know: act.


A harvest of my morning….tiny gifts like rare jewels…ground me in this world of deepest wonder. Eagles grace my walk with their soaring presence. Waves roar and recede and rush and are all one gift of sea. I am overwhelmed and encompassed by gratitude.

I write tonight on these pages for the last time. Perhaps a new place of writing will appear, a new time, another expectation of thoughts. This journey, this seeking resilience and finding our way, never,ever ends. What amazing grace!

    You have a gift, Susan…and you’ve been more than generous in sharing it with all of us. Thank you. While I might see a pretty sunset, you explain it, photograph it, wonder about it, appreciate it, understand your place in it…and wonder some more. Thank you for your wonder and words! From Resiliance onward! Stay connected…
