|The Rise (CAI 2018)|
I say that, and realize, I've been saying that most weeks this month.
It's been a rough month.
I say that, and realize, I've been saying that for many months.
It's been a rough year.
I say that, and realize, maybe it's been longer.
That Rough is now Normal.
That waiting for less rough so I can stabilize is just another way I fool myself
and make myself weak in the moment,
in the now,
in these rough waters
where balance is a constant re-orientation,
falling and re-balancing on the deck of the ship while the waves wash over
holding on tight to what I can
and trusting the waves
to take me home.
