Spin the Wheel

Day 21, 30-day #candleflame challenge.

“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./

Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.”


The power of chance never ceases to amaze me.

One door shuts and another opens.

Or is it that a myriad of doors open.

Infinite possibilities.

Anything is better than waiting in the hallway.

Forward motion.

I like to think that we choose our own fate.

That we can change our path.

That who we are and what we do isn’t a forgone conclusion.

And that the people you meet are there in that perfect moment

For the perfect reason.

As I travel a ton I get to meet folks from all over the world

Who challenge my viewpoint.

Who teach me to slow down.

To step into my power.

To laugh a little bit more.

To see things through their eyes.

Aside from joy, empathy is my favorite feeling/emotion.

I love it.

And am thankful for it.

I’m not a big gambler.

But I do love the board game Risk.

And I do always put a bet on 18, red.q

So, spin the wheel, you never know

where it’s going to take you.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
