Catechism

Why is the path
Always
The same path?

Because I walk
The same path

But why is the path
Always
The same path?

Because I walk
The same path

But why is the path
Always
The same path?
Always
The same?

Because I look
Always
At the same things

We see what we've always seen on the path we always take. Do we simply depend upon the return of the recurrent?

My path had become more of a rut - with neither my knowledge or approval. But Life put a Road Closed sign up, and there I was. Or rather .. where was I?

Certainly on a road I'd not before traveled. My eyes opened to such revelations as wheelchairs and unresolved everything. To little ones who were ill equipped to answer the demands of a road best not traveled in childhood.

Still another branch of that road .. yes, that one ... it demanded I be who I am not. I tried toe-to-toeing ... for naught. The gentle writer struggles clumsily, striving for Assertive. But there's no longer a home-base to which I may return. So I duck my head a bit and become Assertive. In a kindly, helpful way.

That well worn path - maybe the ruts had gotten too deep. Had I become oblivious to the terrain? The familiar, the comfortable, unchallenging - the rut. I do still remember it - more than a little wistfully.

But now I'm on a new path, one not of my choosing. But possibly just the right one for my spirit's next blossoming!
