Sometimes I just want to find a place to hide.
I want to creep under cover, draw in, find shelter. I want to feel safe, breathe deeply, go to sleep. I want to be at home.
Other days I want to climb right up to the edge, to the top, to explore and look over the horizon to a whole new piece of the world. I want adventure.
And then there are days when I find myself at home even while I’m out exploring. Times when I feel at peace and at ease with myself, when my body moves without pain and my mind is clear. When moving is what my body wants to do and my mind is in complete agreement.
These times are few, but when it happens I rejoice in it and know that it’s the best thing in the world, the way things are meant to be.
“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
