There’s this online group of friends that I have been watching. I’m reading their blogs and enjoying the camaraderie between them. I’ve commented on a few of those blogs, but mostly I’ve just been watching. Some of them know I’m there. They’ve acknowledged my comments with comments back. One even emailed me questioning my interest in the group. I admitted that I could actually join their group. I was qualified, but in order to protect the innocent I couldn’t. I could only watch and learn.
Last night I was in a funk. I was sad and mad and frustrated. Though I’ve started down the path toward this group I feel like it’s a slow crawl. I want to stand up and run as fast as I can toward that place. The only problem is that I would be running over a whole lot of people who don’t deserve the trampling.
Last night I left my house and stayed elsewhere so I wouldn’t trample on the innocent. I came back this morning feeling centered and full. Elsewhere does that. Elsewhere reminds me of what I want and what it takes to get there. Elsewhere removes the stones from the road. Elsewhere makes the path smooth. Elsewhere shows me the light at the end of the tunnel. Elsewhere makes the path straight. Oh, wait…definitely not straight. I’ll get there. 😉
