from within...

I've found my way 
by paying attention
my ear to the earth
my eyes to the sky
watching those around me

I've taken on things about others
as my own
only to discover my own self
thru their threads
I've copied
I've mimicked
I've adored
I've been in awe

Through every soul
I journeyed closer to me

Little did I know
they were reflecting
what was already
inside my own self
my own being
and by being
I became

  1. Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xoxoxoxo

  2. So true! What beauty in your being and in the truth of your words;) Anne of green gables once said imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I think perhaps it also transforms facets of being into our souls and bursts them out in a different form. I loved this. Creative and thoughtful;)

  3. YES! Another amazing post that just resonates. Your blog is such a blessing

  4. I LOVE your photography!
    Who takes the photos of you ? ? ?

  5. "what was already
    inside my own self"


  6. The beautiful revealing of self and soul. It is wonderfully wrapped into the lives of others and yet, singular.
