A Little Something On Climbing That Mountain.

 
“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that damn mountain.” ― Jack Kerouac
I happened upon this quote the other day, and...as is generally the case...it got me thinking. I thought of the many times I wished I had, but hadn't. Or, wished I could...but didn't.

I think life is often this way...a series of missed moments resulting from our own inner heart's hesitation...and keeping us always an arm's reach from that which might have been. 

And, it's often not until we have been standing a good long while at the base of our 'mountain' and looking upwards to the brilliance of snow capped peaks along the pale blue sky, that we realize..

now is the time....

They say that hindsight is 20/20...but, I have always believed a robust, thought-filled reflection is just what the spirit needs to soar.

And, soar we must...lest we wander this earth so forever hopelessly lost...

Because, the heart knows where the spirit must go...

And yours, my dears - is somewhere...way up there amongst the clouds, and next to the dreams that you have always wished might be.

So, if may be so bold - what is it that you're really waiting for?

now is the time....
