I love each new day that breaks out with the light of dawn,
another chance for life to fully blossom out for me.
But I also look forward to the quiet and stillness
that night has to offer to roost and to rest.
I love to travel and venture out into the world.
But I also love coming home to recoup and to recharge.
I love being with people and building relationships.
But I also need time to be alone with myself.
And so, in my life as in the universe,
there is a certain rhythm and pulse that goes up and down,
in and out, open and close, dark and light.
There is constant cycle of joy and sadness,
laughter and tears, happiness and suffering.
And I need companions for the journey – with others, with myself.
