Sometimes I feel stuck, in between who I am, who I was, and I who I want to be. My throat is paralyzed.... I am letting go of those parts of myself that no longer work. And each time I let go a little more, I'm left with a hollow space.
Eventually that hollow space fills up with better things, more appropriate things, for where I'm at in my life. Then, a song or a film or a photo reminds me of what used to be there and it throbs.
It confirms what I have always thought...I am still growing up, there are parts of me that still feel 13, and I believe this process of letting go and filling up and remembering and aching...it goes on forever.
And it's a little painful but also really beautiful because it's the stuff of life....and it goes on forever.
(Yes, I know.)
