Road Along The Sea

This life can be as a road along the sea, hugging the cliffs like curves hug a snake. The drive can be anything you want it to be, if only you know what you want and what you need. Driving with the top down at high speed when you feel confident, or maybe when you forgot where are the brakes, you round a curve at the bottom of the hill with the hood of the car pointing up and out over infinity.

You don't know what to do.  You can't see a guard rail, or feel the wheels on the pavement. It gets quiet there, and slow. For a slice of infinity you ponder the Was, Now and What May Be. What is it you have done with this life, and what will you do should you find the road again?  What can bring you back?

Take a deep breath. Let go of the steering wheel. On this road, there is love, if you care to look.  Better yet, if you care to feel.

Love will bring you back.  Love will put up the rail, stop the fall, get the wheels back on the pavement.

Love will do these things, if we let it. We just need to let it take over and drive.


  1. "On this road, there is love, if you care to look. Better yet, if you care to feel."

    Perfectly said. "back on the pavement" is what it does.

  2. The grounding force of nature...beautiful.

  3. I love this - so well said. Gave me goosbumps! The good kind. ;)

  4. Unselfish love is the solution to so many of the world's problems.


"Let your laws come undone
Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."

Tell me what is in your heart...
