Digging the Immaterial;
Yet another human
pondering the Universe
and what it means to be
alive and well within It.

04/08/2003 Entry: ""Happy Trails""

Well, this is it, the last post until at least Friday of next week once I've decompressed and reacclimated to society after a week in Haiti. I don't know what to expect, what my life will really be like when there, and exactly who it is that will be returning. I have much to do before I actually leave and so it's best I hang up the blogging hat and turn the site over to my trusted guest hosts and companeros, Spiralout, Kali and Wo. Neither of them have blogged before, so be gentle with them and enjoy their content.

I'm a little nervous, for sure, and feeling some trepidation. This is natural, of course, and good, for a little fear can be quite constructive in gaining perspective and engaging, shaping and cultivating the soul. But I'm also hopeful, in my usual quixotic sort of way. One could easily say that I'm chasing windmills, and maybe I am, but at the same time I'll be simply present, simply giving love, simply bearing witness to a nation that is suffering yet proud.

One of my most beautiful memories is the day that Joshua and I chased rainbows in Lava Tubes, Oregon, with a wild lady that took us under her glittery wing. On that crazy June day seven years ago we may not have come away with solid results, but with a dream filled with teary laughter, beauty, and hope. I hope that in this southerly pilgrimage, I'll come back with something of the same, something that is not measured as an accomplishment, but rather a moment when I ceased being myself and connected with the thing that makes me myself, and you yourself, and the rainbow the awesome covenant in color it is.

That's it for now. Hasta la vista, happy trails, and keep the home fires warm.

Love,
jaybird
