Run toward the sun December 11 2016


My niece gave me a card (created by Melanie Poirier) that featured artwork urging us to “Run toward the sun to take down a ray of light.” 

I instantly felt the idea without thinking. It felt warm, encouraging, active and optimistic. 

Sometimes I wish things were different. Or hope they will get better. Or yearn for something lost. But wishing, hoping and yearning help nothing. Passivity is, however, easy.

Yet running toward the sun to take down a ray of light exhilarates, thrills, brightens and satisfies. So, if you will excuse me, I think I will try going for a run – that ray of light is out there.
