Choppy Seas

Choppy Seas

Stops and starts. Halting steps. Progress delayed. Interruptions are rampant. Like an off beat staccato, the sound of “mom” “mommy” and the emphasis of “grrr…woof” make a symphony of seeming obstacles…until I stop and realize that the interruptions aren’t the obstacles. My attitude is the obstacle.
     The wind may stir up waves, but it also dries out the sand. It cools us on a warm day, and ushers in warmth after a long cold winter.
    To write, I don’t need smooth glassy seas, I just need to learn how to harness the wind and sail through the choppy seas.  Every wave will teach me how to handle the next one.
