In leaps and with great ease when the heart leads . Struggle becomes delight and light fills the
cracks of the bits that seemed broken . A smile slowly begins to open and widen across a
beautiful face . Even in a dim light the eyes are seen and are dancing . A moment of whimsy
opens the way for a life of cherishing joy .
Leaving space for silence and saying yes to thoughts that are unknown,
and before you know it the bridge has been crossed and you are on the other side . It’s how
to find out who you are .
Dear friend , delight in those leaps and see beyond .

She felt thunder in the earth . It came on so suddenly that she lost her breath . The blood was
racing her veins now and she was , both , frightened and excited .
The instantaneous silence magnified the anticipation .
What was coming ? What was the thundering earth going to bring ?
She stood , her breathing light , and wondered about the life of this bird . A seemingly sweet
Red Robin that had kept coming into view . It reminded her of some sort of a dance . But what
dance might this be ? The forest has a secret life she thought and what will it reveal to me
Glimmers of sunshine streaming through the trees in places . It was hopeful and playful . It
made her smile . She felt , suddenly, like twirling about . Then the Robin , startled by
something unseen , flapped it’s wings rather furiously and it frightened her as well .
The Mysteries of the forest began opening up . revealing marvelous bits of life . Beautiful ,
winged creatures flying between the trees while vibrantly decorated butterflies danced amongst
the sleeping rocks . The songs of the forest coming together like a chorus .
As she walked her awareness of the unique harmony of forest life expanded
and felt it as an invitation to delve deeper into understanding herself as well . oooh just then…
she caught a glimpse of a Red Robin on the path .

She walked with purpose now feeling fit and paying attention to the muscles in her legs . She
thought about how being physically fit was a comfort to her . It nurtured a sense of
independence . It lulled her into a place of confidence , however misleading .
Sometimes she liked to stop along the path and try to breathe it all in . The
longevity of some of the trees and the delicate nature of the smaller blooms optimistic in their
struggle to grow . Glancing at the ground and wondering about the exposed roots of a tree.
Does the tree , somehow , sense it’s vulnerability ? Does it find a way to protect itself by
strengthening itself in other ways ?
She was startled out of her thoughts by rustling sounds and the faint , deep
cries of …what is an animal ? Or perhaps simply the winds howling so as not to be left out of
the mysteries of the path .
