“Loss is nothing else but change, and change is nature’s delight.” — Marcus Aurelius (Roman Emperor)
“I am the joy in change and movement.” – Steve Wiencek (Milwaukee guy)
Celebrating my place in Nature has long been my way to transcend losses and feel grounded. When my husband died, it was like my identity died with him. Transitioning to a new life was very difficult, but spending time pursuing my hobby, photographing the changes in nature, certainly opened my eyes to new life all around, even in unexpected places.
Change is the characteristic of Life. Everything is transformed, even sadness, loss and fear. There is always something new, in a new state of being, to discover. In my case, I discovered Steve, in the state of Wisconsin.
Hey Scilla. This guy – ‘joy in change and movement’ – now that’s living right there. Oh yeah! M
That’s the one. Met him 9 years ago now. 🙂
A lovely post, thankyou..something I’ve noticed with changes is just how rarely we see them coming, sometimes we feel maybe a sense of it..then we’re there and everything looks so different..
We do get lulled into homeostasis and often forget that change is the normal, constancy is not.
