Toddering paths


[Malaysia, cameron highlands]

Not knowing is fine, especially when it is simply a crisis, a period, a hiatus, whatever we term it.

Not lost-no- but certainly no longer flag-waving and blustering with epithets.

Clear the tumbleweeds, air the mothballs, go with the flow, and surely you’ll collect some solid truths by the end of the walk. I think.

And let down, let loose, the stuff you’ve been holding on so tight.

I’ve been slow to blog here, if only to take a meandering walk and look and observe and take in. all out of decision making and opinion forcing. excuse the haphazardness of posts, and in posts.

Time for a walk.
