the road.....but far from the end! ; )

well, it has of course been awhile since i have blogged! i've had a lot to say and not much at the same time. I guess i still haven't figured out why i need to blog at all...i have theories, but i'm not really sure what my intention for having this is. is it narcissism? is it a desire to share inspiration and moments? is it a forum to vent into the cyber world and release a certain knot in my soul? hmm...

so to share some inspiration, express my current state of being and inject some goes


I SHALL foot it
Down the roadway in the dusk,
Where shapes of hunger wander
And the fugitives of pain go by.
I shall foot it
In the silence of the morning,
See the night slur into dawn,
Hear the slow great winds arise
Where tall trees flank the way
And shoulder toward the sky.

The broken boulders by the road
Shall not commemorate my ruin.
Regret shall be the gravel under foot.
I shall watch for
Slim birds swift of wing
That go where wind and ranks of thunder
Drive the wild processionals of rain.

The dust of the traveled road
Shall touch my hands and face.
--Carl Sandburg (funny history between me and 'Sandburg')

this is me leaving the past and keeping in step with my own path:

these are the shadows of the past...on their own road...
