I am adrift.
Unmoored from a routine that defined my very skin and bones lo these past 13 years, I am suddenly unsure how to venture from one day to the next.
Yes, there is work to be done, responsibilities hewn to, the quotidian necessities to give attention and time. But all that is merely a patina on the surface of consciousness—I can do those things in my sleep, with efficiency, quality.
The real question is who I am to be from now on…
…yes, I am still here for him, the child the universe saw fit to put on my path all that time ago; but he is now largely off on his own, on that new adventure all youths cleave to once they sense their wings are strong enough to give them lift.
I know the answer is staring me in the eye; I just need to look right back, reflect, and say the word.
Aloha,I am a child of God and was born on July 10, 1979 in Wailuku, Maui at Maui Memorial Hospital.
Catching the stillness before the storm at the perfect place and time to do so...
once upon a time, with gills
It was ten years ago...
This red earth, at dusk...
At the Whole Foods parking lot, sunrise, caneburning smoke; I looked down and saw, yes, Sanna, adularescence. :-)
Stopped by the airport runway at dusk ... Sanna's word is in there somewhere. ;-)
Haleakala in darkening blue; or, who would be so crazy as to leave this place? Oh... the young.
Hmm... I believe that's an adularescence right there, in the middle of that cloud bank. :-)
