Rather than focusing on the end,
I’m taking this time to focus on how I’m in a state of preparation;
Or maybe I’m coming to realize this is a time of preparation.
As a new year begins,
While reflection is needed and good,
It certainly is not a time of completion.
Completion implies that all is done and over with,
But from where I’m sitting
things are far from done.
There is much going on in the world that must be addressed,
Change that cannot be counted in paper or coin.
Part of addressing issues though is through preparation,
It’s never about rushing to the “end”.
How can you travel on a new path,
Before you know it exists?
While there may not be a marked map of starting & finishing points,
It’s for our best.
For our illusory utopia would remain just that;
an illusion, because we either forgot or refused to learn one key lesson:
We need one another.
Not all who wander are lost, they just might not know how to ask for help.
