Global Nomads

We call ourselves, and revel when we can
in being global nomads.
Open to the world.
For now just in dreams and wishes and fantasies.
But it is a small bright light.
Knowing that we will roam again.
And see amazing things.
Or just sit, and watch and drink
strong tea. And smile at people.

Gambatte =
Keep a stiff upper lip.
What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger.
Soldier on.
If at first you don't succeed, try try again.
Get back on the horse.
And so it goes.

Uphill, both ways...

I am trying, honestly.
But it needs to get a wee bit easier.
(just a little bit easier - would help a lot)

We all learn from playing
and meeting
and talking
and then playing some more.
Some of our teachers are bigger, older, wiser.
Some are smaller, younger and they remind us to be silly.
Best path is to be open to all of it.

Thank goodness for deep roots.
Across countries and oceans,
miles and years, friends and their friends.
I am so supported, and my drive and desire
is to support others as soon as I am able.
One leaf and branch and planter at a time.

Strange is in the eye of the beholder

Some days I don't event notice
Some days life just looks a little strange
where ever I gaze.
Something is just a bit odd about
my life here.
Even in the best of times.
Which this certainly is not.

It is not warm enough yet.
But that does not stop me from wishing it were so.
Getting ready 
for what I hope is a much 
much much
better spring.
