I think we have done the stormy weather bit to death. To be fair to all concerned its had its day, and the obvious outcome is , that we will Not be retracing our steps. Much as I wish this to be untrue, it seems with time dwindling away, that it is indeed a truth.
So what of the future? WELL, The future was being planned while the storm occurred, indeed Both Me My Owl, and my wife petal, have been hard at work while others played in the sun. And together we have created both a safe harbour, play rooms a plenty, testing area for our boats( of which the number grows!) and of course, a Home safe drama free and filled with love and laughter.
I suppose it`s a little bit like retiring from service, to now have time to relax and sail ride or spend the day in bed, without interruptions and constant bickering. There are a few that I will miss dearly, and a few that I will happily allow to continue sliding away into the dim and distant. and they Know who they are and why they will be allowed their ” peace” BUT, I do have to say, if they want to stop that, all they have to do is find me and Hug .. simple! Of course, I am expecting their pride to get in the way.
Riding as I do now every other day on the g an h and other tracks and roads, is like sailing. It allows me to think, I know I know I’ve said it before , but it really does give me time and space to simply Think about things people places I’ve been places I really do not wish to return to. Some of those PlacesI will miss, of course, the company and camaraderie where indeed rather awesome at the time. But time does not stand still. And I find lately that, a new direction was needed, found accessed, and is now a path towards a future.
I cannot say where this direction will take me, Nor can I say with any certainty that this new path will not be without bumps in the road. What I can say with a modicum of pride, Is that the friends that have stayed the course, held me, when the nights were dark, wiped my eyes when it got too much , or simply said ” fuck em ” and hugged me. Those friends will remain on the path towards my future. And we shall share the rewards of that when we arrive. Till next post, Stay safe, enjoy the sparkles Rose xx
I suppose the old saying stands.
