possibilities and perspective…

Amazing what a little sleep will do for a girl; or in all actuality, an hour or two followed by a very meaningful lack of aforementioned sleep… =) I know, too early in the day for TMI… sheepish grin…

He got home at midnight on the button, carrying a half cup of cold coffee and yawning hugely. Standing in the kitchen swaying to quiet country songs, he held me and as my breathing slowed he said “I don’t know what’s got you so tied up right now but let’s forget about it for a while, huh, little girl?”

As exhausted as he was, 2 am found us laying in bed, candles burned down by several inches, sheets a tangled mess, mirroring my tousled locks. As I pulled away to grab water, he would not let me go, and continued to hold me. That small, half grin playing about his lips, flickering candle light throwing shadows across his beautiful and strong visage, he said “just hush now, be still”…

How can he have such a calming effect on me ? He soothes me like summer rain, like the gentle swells of the Indian Ocean… and I have no way to let him know how much I feel. How much he does to me, all that is between us… I find my words, my currency, failing me daily, and although I am most assuredly NOT a grand gesture person, I think spelling his name with puffy clouds in an azure sky for the world to see would be a good start. =)

I am off to interview for an internship this morning, as well as 2 other jobs at my baby college. Nothing glamorous, pay is a pittance, hours unreasonable… but the possibility of being there sends my heart soaring… This is a new day, that clean slate I believe so much in, and thru some chance of The Fates, I have possibilities lined up for the next 6 weekdays. Success does not come quickly for most, and I am definitely not the exception to that rule. However, giving myself opportunities to expand and grow can only bring about positive change.

Here’s to everyone today who is contemplating a detour off the beaten path. I know it is scary, that the branch looks mighty thin from this angle. But once you are out there, swaying in the breeze, perhaps your heart will take over, and the fear in your head will be laid to rest as the possibility of a brand new life unfolds before you… now there’s a happy-making thought. =)
