some corners we come to and our eyes feast on new visions. our ears on new sounds. our soul on new feelings. and some corners we come to that, although they bring something new to us, they also harken us back to times before. remind us of where we’ve been.
and perhaps it gives us a glimpse of where we’d like to go
standing on corners, taking in all that life has to offer and taking stock of all the obvious and not-so-obvious opportunities that stand waiting before us in all direction, it gets to you sometimes.
sometimes you can be calm, centered, and open to what comes. sometimes we put too much of who we think we need to be in our interpretations of what comes our way. sometimes we are so withdrawn into ourselves and our issues–big and small–that we fail to notice.
but there will always be corners.
