Growth: not so straight ahead, always. We forget that. The twists along the way: we lose jobs, we lose lovers, and loves. We change towns, or countries. We wake up one morning and everything looks terrible, but a month later it looks better in a different way. We go to sleep facing East and wake up facing South. Some inner gyroscope guides us as we continually re-orient ourselves to sky, to light, to nurture. We hit flat spots, we hit bottom, we find new support, we turn inward, upward, downward, we reach above our heads, until years later looking back — “what an odd trail I have left!”
