Next

I find great hope and solace …
Even inspiration and encouragement …
In the knowledge that somewhere;
Perhaps around the next corner;
Or on the calendar’s next page ...
Perchance in the morrow’s post;
Maybe with the next ring of the telephone;
Or even in a comment from a Friend;

There lies a world of possibility ...
Yet unknown to me ...
Awaiting my discovery.
Now still, silent, and beautiful in its promise.
Just as is true of the denizens of The Deep …
Unaffected by all of the cacophony of other worlds …
Alive and ripe with their own particular potential.
And all that I need do is awaken, and discover, what is ...
Next.

several years ago I was in the Smokies, totally exhausted. After three days, I finally had an adventure worth talking about and decided to greet my neighbors in the next campsite. As I started their way I was surprised to find the husband heading mine. He said, "My wife and I think you look very interesting and decided to talk to you if you weren't going to talk to us." We spent three hours by the fire and have been close friends ever since. Who would have guessed that such a simple act could bring about such a weatlth of communication of mind, spirit and heart! Yes, there is reason for hope.
