to be…

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “New Skin.”

I have spent so much time and effort trying to be the best me I can be.  For my children.  For my wife.  For my friends.  For the world around me.  For myself.

If I were to change:

  • should I be the salmon or the river?
  • should I be the eagle or the sky?
  • should I be the cedar or the soil?
  • should I be the wood or the fire?

If I were to choose, I would be Everything.  I want to deeply understand how it all works, how we all interconnect.

Besides, after you have been Everything, it wouldn’t be so hard to just go fishing, now would it?
