Right now, I guess I am having a Rudyard Kipling moment and desire to put his poem out there on my blog...I was thinking of several things and so at least during the herbiphany, I decided to jot or brainstorm some of these ideas in my diary that is about as messy as our apartment...
a jumble of junk transposed into a blog(??)...some might interpret my essays of my own personal vicissitudes, trials, tribulation, challenges and the elusive triumphs that dot my horizon in the present and the future...
while escaping the disasters and economic hardships of the states...and can I put off facing this giant accelerating global financial and environmental crisis just a couple more weeks???
and maybe there could be a best seller and rights to a movie somewhere in my delusional vision???
I was chatting with a good friend and professional lifeguard today about having a vision, making a commitment and paying the price....this bloke has been a very succesful surf iron man with leading several clubs to succesful records...He's had a vision for his family , his own personal athletic and career record while doing what he loves all day!
I thought about how my vision/dream of living on the beach with my family can really happen..it's what Ive been waiting for all my life for!! and I have paid the price and not let anything get in the way...even overcoming obstacle all throughout this new period of parenthood!
"If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools "
