spt



Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. - buckminster fuller



here i stand, literally on the edge of the land, my back to the atlantic ocean. for now, i am alone, and it seems as if my tall, sturdy shadow can bear it all.

and i know that it can't. the sun will shift and the image will falter. the strong outline will blur, blending into other shadows, other lives.

today i am thank-full for all of the days that i have found solace, or spark, in this beautiful blogosphere. for the chance to cast my shadow out into the world, to share my *me-ness.* for the opportunity to blend with all of you.

happy thanksgiving!

You definitely cast a nice shadow, not only on the sands tickling your tootsies, but in Blogville too! Great thoughts (as always!).

My shadow slyly moves among my fellow humans. We touch without invading each others space and feel warmth, gratitude and love.

This is a very thought-provoking subject. If I can find some sun to cast my shadow, I'll do my best!
Kristi will love this, what with her love for silhouettes!
