Just a quick post to let you guys know I am ok – I got up early (but not early enough to catch the sunrise where I wanted to catch it!) — so,… as I was driving north I pulled over to get the sun where I was — An ok spot on the river — Driving towards it; 4 deer were guarding the entrance and checking me out – kind of a low impact Cerberus waiting for me as I approached the dock.
Not a successful photo-shoot — but it is my first this year — this is a good step.
My life has experienced more sadness recently than ever but I feel it is finally letting go —
– because I have finally let go.
It is ok for me to feel joy, in fact, it is ok if I run to that bliss and meet it head on.
Until this week I would not let myself do that – I felt that: I did not deserve it and was not entitled to it. Those of you who have experienced great loss probably understand this.
So yesterday – I let myself have sushi for the first time in forever and it was sublime.
Today I took some photos.
Small steps indeed — but good steps.
Notes: This is more like a recovering from grief post that I would not put on this site — but I had not posted in so long, wanted everyone to know where I was.
Wish you all well.
I continue to drive myself to a new shore – I no longer dread it is happening – I welcome it.
(Although like the deer, I am cautious)

I heard a quote recently, “never underestimate the importance of small steps” – and I agree with that wholeheartedly.
I had sushi yesterday too and would use a similar adjective Wayne 🙂
And never underestimate the power of good sushi Geoff!
This was a joyful post, Wayne, and it just warmed my heart. The sunset is beautiful, by the way. A wonderful step.
I am just writing what it is — and it is everything, sometimes all at once. But I feel I am being guided through by powers greater than me – both in this world and beyond it.🌅
Small steps are often the best steps. Keep your chin up.
Thanks much MM! Good to be walking again – even small steps are going forward.
Lovely how you tied all the threads together. Glad you’re airing out the grief and embracing bliss again.
I am doing my best Tiffany ☀️ – thanks for the continued support!
One day at a time Wayne!!!
I here you Cheryl I do – but I have to start looking ahead in order to get my life on track – you can only be lost for so long. ✨
Wayne I do agree-however, if you plan one day and accomplish whatever you want to, you will be that much further ahead my friend. My thoughts are with you as you move forward-You ROCK dude!
Great pics. Looks like a great way to spend a morning.
It was good – very quiet and still. A good start!
Keep going! You are entitled to your new happiness and never forget that. Lovely photos and a meaningful weekend is wished for you. Garfield hugs😊
