Old And New Eyes

Looking on at a difficult situation with 'new eyes' can be challenging, heart wrentching, exhausting, testing, emotionally draining... The list could go on. Looking back on a situation with 'new eyes' can be just the same.

How do we deal with this? How do we deal with our own expectations; expectations of ourselves, expectations of others, expectations of a situation?  How do we comprehend all that goes on within us, mind and soul? How do we make sure that our 'new eyes' don't take away from the experiences that our 'old eyes' had?

Our 'old eyes' saw something great and embraced it, our 'new eyes' see something great turned in to a challenge to deal with, yet still needing to be embraced.


A lot has happened lately. A lot is happening. A lot will soon happen. This is life.

I just now have many questions about dealing with all of this, good or bad, positive or negative, old or new. Not so much answers to be looked for, but questions to continue to be asked.

Feels Like Home To Me

When walking along a very familiar beach, with very familiar people, watching a very familiar sunset, a very old familiar song popped in to my head.
"Feels like home to me. Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from."
And that was right, that is right. But the strange thing is, it's also right that I'm leaving this place.
No more familiar walks along the Machair watching the sunset with these people again. Not like this anyway.
