As I strolled into another day just another hue different than the last, I took the time today to reflect over the past four years. I didn't realize until this moment that in that time my course and direction didn't venture very far from who I was to who I am now, but one thing was missing...my connection to my spiritual path.
I pay attention to the news and interact daily with all I have, but reflection and stillness were blurred by trying to get to the next phase.
While creating a photo book dedication for my dad, and adding photos of mom (who passed four years ago) I immediately was drawn back to a posting released here on newsvine four years ago. Not having logged in since that time, and disembarked on a strayed journey, I somehow easily remembered my login to find the article to add to the photo book. Not but minutes into reading what I had written I was instantly connected to my emotions, which brought me in the vine in the first place. I see friends who helped me through the toughest time in my life...complete strangers at first, but who quickly became friends that I looked forward to talking with, although never face to face, or even on the phone.
This is more of an appreciation for this website, and my attempt to reconnect to those who I graciously thank for their words of support and inspiration. I have slid off the hillside a bit with my spiritual journey and look to be apart of making the climb once again. I hope that in my absence I can reconnect and look forward to the synergy.
