What are all the little things that stand between you and your dreams?
You see the rainbow, but do you run for it?
Do you brave the storm and plunge?
What are we waiting for?
I ask myself that.
Then out of the blue, scary/strange/curious/unexpected things happen in life.
And I ask myself, what are you waiting for?
Then I ask myself, what are my dreams even?
Do I even know exactly what they are?
Do you know what yours are?
Mine have changed so much in the last 10 years.
They are so simple now, just a simple happy life, that's my dream.
No worries or cares.
With the fur boys snoring under me, as they are now.
Life kicks us sometimes, to wake us up.
To show us, hey you, it's right there.
Go, jump for it, run.
But then, right next to the rainbow, there is a flash of light.
Something rocks your world.
Terrifies you even.
Somehow, you get through it, try to find your way again.
Then the clouds and lightning disappear, and behind it all, still waiting...
Calling your name.
It's there, even though sometimes life's trials and tribulations make it seem very far away.
Over that rainbow.
Where does your rainbow lead you?
How's your journey going?
Goodness, these life journeys.
Can't we just be 6 forever?
ps: Matty follows me on walks around the garden.
If I turn to look at him he stops.
But if I walk forward, he licks my leg or gently nips my hand as it swings.
Telling me he is there, like a little shadow, protecting me.
That curious little brown dog.
