Making life out of un-life

Tags:

Life is cruel, rude, overwhelming, or otherwise it is warm, fulfilling, loving and nurturing, right? No!! It is not like this. Life is not a checker's panel in black and white. Life is full of gray spots. Sometimes the greatest moment hides the worst moment in itself, and somethimes the worst moment is carrying the seed of the greatest moment of your life.

Being away from Pulsewire is like having stopped drinking. My thirst for it is too much. Even though I have no internet at home ( which I hope to solve by next week, hopefully before Friday), and I am going through turmoil changes in my life, my desire to tell you all that life is worth living, that we should always meet here to tell each other how great life can be, and to remind each other that the purpose of life is... life itself, thriving and eager to remain. With its ups and downs, with the good and bad entwined like in a piece of marble cake, that you can only say it tastes great if your bite has both colors, vanilla and chocolate, and with the real sense of belonging to this planet, life is worth living my friends.

Let us not get pulled away from the purpose of life. Let us taste together the intoxicating aroma of the wine we produce every day, word by word when we write to tell about the good and the bad, the dull and the exciting, the black and the white, the gray and the red, that surround every minute, every step of our minute days.

I am so thrilled to see the stories in the Voices of the Future 2010 program. These voices are an inspiration to me, and show us all that the path is open and ready to be walked.

Love you all so much!

This was beautiful, thank you

This was beautiful, thank you for sharing. I agree, we should write about the good and bad, because we all can relate. I'm sorry you are going through tough times. Hopefully with our writing, we can lift each other up.

Hi Aimee

Yes! We will surely lift each other up. When people get together (it doesn´t matter if it is via internet) and share the beauty of rolling hazzards, the load is a lot less heavy, as we are being helped to carry it :)

Love,

Hi jackie...
so good to see your face in my friends posts...it has been a while. Life is incredibly busy here, so very little time for me to sit & write (and it is usually with one hand while I am nursing a baby... ;) I understand what you mean..when I get away from World Pulse I miss it incredibly.

talk to you soon,
sending much love...
