Six Word Fridays: connect

16 09 2011


how the past and the present

connect is an interesting landscape, divided

not by time or memory, but

by action and experience. framed, frozenSix Word Fridays

or kept perpetually in motion. painting

a canvas of thoughts, feelings. morphed

into a kaleidoscope world where you

make choices to relive or live!

a process of being – of seeing.

if you are what you are

from what was, ask yourself. decide.

what will i choose to become?

So much of our past and present shapes who we are, but the future is not set in stone. We must choose to move towards what we want to be. I’m working on that. :)

I totally free-formed this poem so no idea if it makes sense. What do you take from it?

Beautiful ~ I love the notion of making the choice to relive or live. That’s a mind-changing catch phrase … you know, for moments when I’m stuck emotionally and want to be unstuck. Great message of accepting what is/has been and making choices to shape what comes next!

I think it’s great.we have a great deal of choice in how our future will play out. and it’s just kaleidoscopy enough to fit your theme. :)

Can we choose what to take with us into the future, and what to leave behind? Or are we always a swirl of what was, moving forward into what will be? I’m a kaleidoscope of questions, most of the time.

I love that you present living and reliving as a choice; it’s so easy to forget!

Our choices do color our futures. Of that there is no doubt. Thanks for this reminder.
