A recent event has prompted thoughts of creating a new chapter in Life's Book. All of us receive signs that there are things we should no longer hang on to.

Moving on can mean different things to different people.  For some, it means finding closure to a chapter in one's life. For others , it is a journey of self discovery. Persistent unhappiness and a lack of alignment with the self are definite signs of a need for change. 

All of us must move on eventually, with acceptance and sometimes, forgiveness. Enjoy, well, this little chapter.


Hard to turn

The words

Blured, misaligned



Pages turn

As the wind blows

Together with

The sands of time


Must close

Spine of book


Turn to

The right
