Present

G R A T I T U D E

Currently, I’m focusing my time and attention on being present for my wife, my daughter, and my family. My time, being there, is the greatest gift I can give them.

Because of family loss and tragedy, I was struggling with relating to myself, my spouse — and in a larger sense — my perception of the world. My writings have been vulnerable experiments and expressions of uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure. Creatively, I’ve been learning to open my heart and find the courage to be myself again.

Writing and sharing with you has been a major source of my healing. Facing my emotional pain and confusion hasn’t been easy. Thank you for holding my hand through this process. I’m grateful for your gentle challenges and support over the years.

I am worthy — and everyday I’m more hopeful and thankful. I’m opening my mind to life’s tricky perspectives. I’m starting to fully appreciate the diverse colours, hues and wondrous changes (and challenges) of this moment. I’m in awe of our kaleidoscope. Thank you for sharing and caring during my transformation.

  1. The lesson for me Geo?
    There is no measure in relationship
    except within ourselves
    How wide or tall our love becomes…
    And here in virtual meanderings
    we come like lone wolves
    our spirits singing out
    in the silence of boundless space
    we find harmony in kindred songs
    Praying in the moonlight
    Wrestling in the sunshine
    Exercising the muscles of love

    Peace my dear poet friend, to you and your lovely family! And thank you for all the nudging and honing inspiration…from the very beginning.

  2. Your writing and sharing have not only brought healing to yourself, but have also touched and awakened the hearts and creative spirits of others. As somebody who also came to WordPress to find healing and new perspective, I admire your courage and am grateful for your sharing. Enjoy time with your wife and your daughter– every moment is a present.
