Obstacles

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.
Frank A. Clark

The last few weeks have been surreal. An unexpected lay-off for my best friend in NJ, a maternal aunt in critical condition, gas prices surging past four dollars, a family divorce, fires all around, work issues and I could go on...It makes for many holes in the normal reality of life. One could focus on the negativity, but I'm seeing it that I have to do some creative thinking and planning. I thought I could see where my path was leading before the aforementioned few weeks ago. However, now I'm realizing there are obstacles in the path and I don't have a clear view where it's leading at this point in time, but once I get around the obstacles I have a feeling the path is going to lead to a very interesting set of opportunities in life. The trick is to stay alert and not let oneself be lulled into sleepwalking or in the words of The Damnwells, sleepsinging or you might miss the opportunities.
