Perspectives Shift

Remember youth?
Life an adventure
heart full of dreams

Responsibility made us quartz
working machines, focus
on destination – life as goal

In the gloaming, time blurs
nostalgia and regret dance with
perspective – the irony of it all.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Butterflies are one of my favourite symbols of change and transformation. And We VJ – still have the dreams in us. This is the calling I hear beneath this post. Perspective is harsh (I have was reminded of this yesterday, and last week – HARSH). Yet the softness of youth still lives in our dreams. We VJ are the butterflies. xo (thank you for this, I am always moved by your posts)
