you will get your heart's desire
you'll swap Doug Firs for Ponderosas
Hemlocks for Lodgepoles
rain for snow
roses for desert dust...
|Running wild and free.|
I woke up this morning in my bed in NE Portland; I will go to sleep tonight in my new city of Bend, OR. I have become the Editor of the local alt weekly... and for this bold move my heart's desire will be earned.
Meanwhile, nothing is gained without something lost.
My old girl Libre went with me on a recent trip to my new city, where we camped on the shores of a blue-green lake and she mostly hid in the tent. In the Ponderosa forest, under the bright stars, half-dreaming, I realized she needed to be at peace.
So much like ripping all the Band-Aids off at once, i knew i had to set her free before we moved. Yesterday myself and her other beloved humans Sammy and Marnie held her and talked to her as she slid from this life of old-girl pain to the place where she is running free, chasing deer with her brother and mom. Ironically, i see that otherworldly place being also shaded by pointy Ponderosas.
And your heart's desire was always freedom
So try now to find it...
