Whether in the Sunset or the Sunrise
My mind still spins with thoughts of people I met, what I want to do now, how I will put into practice my new and old and middle ideas. Integrate the past with the present to create my future. Do I go to the writing conference I had planned in September? Do I stay near home and take a day away and write? And my journal class, how will I market that? How can I help others? What about my writing? Do I continue onward with the new work or revise and resubmit the older work? Will I ever find that one other? I wonder about so many things. And in the wonder there is life. The sun sets every night, but the sun rises every morning. The sun rises every morning and the sun sets every night. What different ways to look at the world it seems. I prefer the former. I like the end to lead to a new beginning. A week ago I lived in a special place with special people who I wish to keep connected in my life. My time with them in that special place came to an end, but for me that ending created the start. My questions push me forward. The answers will come eventually, whether in the sunset or the sunrise.
