I am bidding farewell to my blog of almost three years, which has been a fundamental part of my life since my year-long search for meaning. I will leave this here in the vastness of cyberspace as it will always be a part of me and the tapestries of humanity as a whole through the connections it made with people who took the time to drop by and read what I had to say.
My sincerest gratitude to the readers who made sharing a piece of my life a very worthwhile thing to do.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "The only true gift is a portion of yourself."
Many times in our lives comes a sense of clarity that seemed perfect. Yet somehow, what was clear at that time may not be very clear now at all. What belongs to the past is given a curtain call and the lights are dimmed until they are finally put out - perhaps, for good. Unlike this amazing power to look into the past with all the time we want and can afford to lose just to ponder on hindsight, such power to look into the future has not been granted to us. To have foresight, yes, but it has never been a guarantee to make things happen exactly the way we have imagined them to be. Nevertheless, the brilliant part of it all is the certainty of hope that perhaps the best is yet to come.
I will not be truly gone, however, because I still have in my heart this calling to share. You can follow me at my new online home: Imprints.
...It never fails to take my breath away: the shifting of trends, the changing of times, the breaking of ties and the formation of new ones. A new kind of clarity has dawned upon me and the old one has served it's purpose. My search for meaning goes on.
All I can say is... It's about time. :)
