Everyone talks about the seasons of a life..... Never really though about it..till now. And I realize that it is true. We all watch the changing seasons of our lives. Spring is childhood. Fresh, green , new. Full of possibilities...pushing our lives up through the soil... testing our roots and unfolding our leaves.... Learning, growth, discovery. Summer is our youth. Hot, warm,red and yellow. Long warm golden days of play. Experimenting with life and love... and the direction of who we are. Ah....autumn... the changing of the leaves...the coolness in the air. Our middle years. A time of peace and contentment. Quiet times of reflection and satisfaction with who we are and where our lives have led us. I am now in the winter of my life. Cold,white,silent. Emptiness and desolation. I had hoped that I would have your warmth to guide me through this season.... But I see now that I must go through this final change alone. Is there no one to keep me warm? To kindle a fire in my heart and soul Against the winter chill? Only time will tell Whether I must wrap myself in the embers of my solitary memories or find someone to light a fire to warm my old soul. Will I find that 5th season..... rekindling the warmth of summer and the contentment of Autumn? We will see what this year brings........

Gee Crusin...T says Spring and you say Fall....can I split the difference and try summer.... g/f...I am better and stronger with each passing day..... Depressed....nah...not any more...I didn't lose anything in the long run.... I am busy, active, happy...and have a wealth of wonderful friends....it only gets better. Thanks for caring Crusin. SIDE NOTE....actually wrote that poem several years ago....just thought I would share it.

You are hardly winter, chickie!!! :} Think about it...depends, wheelchairs, and a dental soft diet? Hhmmm, not you for a long while yet. I would say "fall" and depressed. Enjoy each day, it is a gift. Go wink at few decent bike riding dudes in your area and start conversing with them. Don't wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it. At the very least you may make a few new friends...and you never know where those new connections may lead...maybe to the right one for you.

Thanks T....yes...seasons are transitional...and we all go through transitions....large and small. The key , I think, is to be able to adjust to those transitions and be happy and content with them and to learn from them.

It is true how we see ourselves so differently than others see us. Though we know ourselves better than others do obviously. But I see you as in your springtime Sun. Very, very much so. You are always doing, exploring, new things happening, new friends. Right now you feel a winter freeze. And only you know how true your feelings run. But what others "see" may suprise you. I see nothing frozen and cold, not in the least. You project such zest, vibrancy, life. And seasons are transitional.
