THE GREAT GRATITUDE ADVENTURE/ DAY TWENTY-TWO/ EDGES
“Friends of De-Light”
Edges: Without You, There IS No Me
I have two sisters and one brother. They are the “edges” that defined me as a kid growing up in the 60’s and 70’s and they are the edges that continue to shape me now.
Like the negative space in a still life set up define the objects within (we don’t often think about it, but without those, how would we know the shape of a tulip? Or the size of a sunflower?) my siblings have helped define me.
I am the baby of the family which can mean many things including trying to find your own uniqueness–what makes you different than the rest of the gang.
Like a bouquet of flowers, we over lap on many fronts. Hair color, eye color–all browns:)) Music? All of us sing, one sister plays piano, my brother plays guitar, my other sister writes music. Writing? Both my brother and I have published books, and one of my sisters writes and is yet to publish. Painting? My brother and I both at it for years now.
I am who I am in great part due to the family that surrounds me.
Obviously, my “family” has grown over the years and includes up to the minute, folks that have just entered my life via a workshop, an email, a chance meeting at an airport!
I find this family helping me to define myself, to grow, to reach for the light, just as much as my siblings have done for me all these years. I see our commonalities, our “over lap”. These relationships help me to appreciate me and also shine light into the areas of where I next hope to grow into:))
We really do need each other.
We need this human bouquet of negative spaces, lost and found edges, to help us know and love our own selves.
Without them, we would be just a big glob of yellow or a blur of pink (speaking as a sunflower and tulip:)).
Every person in our lives is there to help shape and define us.
So just how important are You to Me???
Without you, there IS no me.
Thanks for being you and helping me become….me:)))
