A Launching Point

‘A Launching Point’

Where to from here?

What do I really want to be?

The answer to each question begins at a launching point.

It may end at a visible horizon, something known.

Or in a place beyond that horizon, a place uncertain.

Whatever it is to be, it is not the status quo.

Courage, energy and vision are what are required at a launching point.

If that is where you are, I wish you those attributes in spades!

Stand Tall

‘Stand Tall’

On my recent road trip up north, I passed through the magnificent Waipoua Forest.

Kauri trees are the great trees of Aotearoa/New Zealand, and the forest contains the largest specimens of them.

To look up the straight trunks into the leafy canopy is to be simply awe struck.

Truly inspirational!

I often find myself “crouching down”, in a metaphysical sense at least, rather than “standing tall”. Lacking self-confidence; doubting myself; the sort of shit that plagues many of us, I suspect.

If I have any resolution for the New Year it is to be like the kauri trees pictured – tall in spirit, standing proud.
