Why Now?

“And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud

was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Anaïs Nin

I have often been inspired by this quote, and now I have arrived at another moment when these words ring in my ears with such an insistent clamour, they can no longer be ignored. 


So here I stand, stepping up and out into that well known place of uncertainty.  Accompanied as always by my frequent companions of fear and doubt, I step out anyway, knowing that to shy away from todays challenges, will leave my other friends of possibility and serendipity shaking their heads . . . so, taking a breath,

I once again remember . . . 

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

Anaïs Nin

This is the ground I chose to stand on, and the path I aim to walk.
