Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Where's the Fire?

We must act out passion before we can feel it.
Jean-Paul Sartre

This past weekend, our son and his wife were in Sequoia

They came home with tales of peace

and wonder

and fire.

They explained that some pods that hold the seeds of magnificent trees

will only burst open

and start the growth of new trees

when heated by fire.

I get that!

I have seen what happens when dreams grow cold

When the seeds of greatness

lying within us never come forth

It is because something has put out the fire

Doused by that one last cold splash of disappointment

Or simply buried under the ashes of time

or regret

or worry

or fear of failure

fire killers all....

But I also get this....

You can find the fire -

the passion- once again


Find that fire that once filled your heart

You know where you left it.

Get it back

it is yours!

And never let it go out again

And that’s poetiquejustis
