Our Blog: Thoughts from the Path

Moments. Small but Mighty.

One of our community members who is also a friend, was telling me about her recent trip to Italy. When I asked her if there was any one special moment that stood out for her, she didn’t hesitate. She knew exactly what it was.

“My sister and I wanted to get a deeper sense of the town we were visiting, so we decided to go off and explore on foot. Walking around the town, wandering and meandering, we passed by all sorts of fascinating buildings and avenues but there was one restaurant that seemed to be beckoning to us so we listened to the whisper and stopped to look in the windows. As we did so, a woman opened the door and welcomed us inside. We thought maybe we’d each simply get a beverage, Kerry a beer and myself a glass of wine.

Life is Like a Sunrise

​I found myself mesmerized by the sunrise one particular morning when out for my usual walk. With its unabridged version of transformation and expansion taking place right there in front of me in a seemingly effortless display of colors, textures and layers upon layers of awe-inspiring inventiveness, as if it’s the most natural thing in the world!

Stepping onward, ruminating on the many times I’ve heard myself or someone else say, Did you see the sunrise?” as if it’s a one sentence occurrence, I let my thoughts wander along, keeping company with the sequence of sky changing adventure, a pattern began to take shape to where I could see the exquisite parallel between the unfolding of my life and the blossoming of a sunrise.

Women Who Walk Together, Inspire Intelligent and Emotional Optimism

“I have a dream, a vision, a belief. I am a woman just like you. Well, maybe, not just like you, but like you; kindred.”

Within each of us are rich, complex and timeless stories, hungering to be set free; to be voiced; to be heard. You’ve had harder times than me. I’ve had harder times than you. But in the end, we’re still women. We have in common dreams, fears, emotions, pain, tradition, differences, music, struggles, achievements, creativity and passionate hearts.

The Dragonfly in You

No matter where we walk there’s always something to be noticed. A little tidbit to put in your pocket and carry with you throughout the day; some glimmer of wonder to hold onto that gives pleasure and strength. Simply open the door and slide back the ceiling to reveal the magic of the outdoors. Out there goes on forever.

The walking outside experience can feel different each time depending on where, how and with whom we are walking. It’s good to get off the paths or sidewalks and take a detour; explore. A walk up that humongous hill with a stop to breathe (in my case, pant!) turns it into an event with a reward at the end. I did it. You did it. We did it!
