Recovering the Songbird

1376467_614197425297496_634544606_nAnne Lamott quoted her pastor in a Face Book post saying,

“It’s not what you look at; it’s what you look with.”

Sometimes what we see at first glance is not what actually exists, but a misrepresentation. Through time we often discover and recover the depth of what is actually there.

Years ago a prophetic sort of fellow said to me that I had the ability to get the songbird up and singing again. I had the ability to mine the gold out of misfortune. Interestingly, all those many years ago, I had no idea that I would be the songbird that needed to reconnect to her song after 3 ½ years of silence and an inability to sing.

Screaming Under the Underpass

Kimberism: Every obstacle holds opportunity. Recently upon my morning walk I discovered a route that takes me under the most wonderful underpass. Normally I wouldn’t have considered this brief part of my trek scenically delightful and could have missing its value.

It is the perfect opportunity to scream, sing, or shriek at the top of my lungs! Then I continue my enthusiastic theme for the rest of the walk, whatever it may be. This combined with this season of artistic expression create the perfect vehicles to enjoy the scenery of life. What a delight it is to let all of my pent up emotion come howling out from the depth of my being. My beautiful jaunts, vivid with California vegetation, sunshine, and concrete overpass creates fodder for some of my best ideas, now enhanced with screeching at the top of my lungs under the underpass. What ways are you finding to scream under your own underpass? I would love to hear how you creatively let off steam and navigate through your own passage ways of life!
