renewal relates to today's drawing too:
: : the space between the going out and the coming in : :
my days are filled with moments when i decide - consciously or unconsciously - if, when i go out, i will come in again; if i will renew the connection with whatever, or whomever, may be waiting for my coming in. oftentimes that "whomever" is me... i'm amazed (horrified?) by how often i go out and don't "remember" to come back for days...weeks...even months. i'm there it would seem, but i'm not fully present to my life.
what a gift to be conscious of the "spaces between."
to be fully present when those spaces appear...
i like to think that those small - almost infinitesimal - spaces are the ones that define our lives.
with each of those spaces comes the opportunity to renew - and to be renewed.
and maybe, if we're lucky, to offer renewal to someone else...
