Chaos, anxiety, angst, distress, sadness. Worry for where all this is going. One has to seek refuge where one can periodically to reset equilibrium. I’ve spoken in the last couple of Sunday Traveler posts about the beauty of this little town where I live. I’ve found that going out to take photos in the evening is my prescription for peace; going out and seeking beauty to believe that it still exists in this world, and is not an illusion that I’ve dreamed up in my head. I’ve just recently seen something written by Elizabeth Gilbert that I’ll leave here for you. I am so in agreement with her on this; it has been my salvation over the last few difficult years since my husband died, and it continues to serve its purpose in today’s world. I highly recommend it.
“Whatever your life brings to you, respond with creation. If you are celebrating, create. If you are grieving, create. Only create. Always create. Constant creative response. This is the engine of resilience”.
Thanks for bearing with me on getting a bit off track here from my usual travel posts. I couldn’t leave it in the unsaid.
Let’s travel on, leaving beautiful things in our wake to share with each other as we go.
