A Single Lifetime Moment
I never thought I’d feel as I do at this very moment. Even if I wanted to, time couldn’t escape destiny and life isn’t playing anybody on a whim. Reasons are born under the sun and the moon that we are breathing into. There’s a cloud for every doubt and a pause for reconsideration of life's meaning. Crossroads aren’t a puzzle we have to figure out.
Not long ago I, too, was at a crossroad, bearing in mind the sentiments had come and using my eyes to see. Four directions were available and there were two separate roads. It seems that the choice was mine and mine alone to make. Left vs. right, south vs. north, and east vs. west were options without signs and yet the writing was on the wall. It was all like graffiti in a dream to me and the artist of the graffiti was a genius. The message was quite simple and I began reading the words out loud.
“Boomerangs never travel backwards.” I repeated to the wind.
I noticed that these four words were splashed into the graffiti painting of an angel with wings: boomerangs never travel backwards, boomerangs never travel backwards, and boomerangs never travel backwards.
“What the heck?” I echoed from within, realizing that my own voice was bouncing off of the walls, back-and-forth like a ping pong ball and that this dream of mine was spinning out of a void. Go figure, I smiled.
Maybe it wasn’t all that complicated and I wasn’t even in a maze to begin with. Something that I’d thrown out eons ago was returning tenfold and I realized that it was all just a basic idea. The thought had always been that I was going to be ok. The dream had been a real eye opener that I’d forgotten about.
So, there I was holding the boomerang in my hand and walking toward the river of an engaging conversation. The most beautiful language I’ve ever heard was rippling through ever tiny waves of nature’s speaking.
It wasn’t even that I was telling time on that day; time was telling me everything I needed to know. No matter which direction way I decided to go, I’d find my way to the giant. What more did I have to know when I’d left the void forever now? The answers I’d been searching for was in my hands and the man I’d fallen in love with was holding it.
