On this, the 10th day of christmas,
the lords were a-leaping

Ahhhh, of course!
They were young.
ell, younger than I
as days of physical leaping are behind me

But, what about
… creative leaping
… emotional leaping
… spiritual leaping
They’re not behind me
… or any of us.
They await!

When we leap
… over those limits we place on ourselves
when we leap
… over the limits society or others place on us
we become involved in
… creative leaping
… emotional leaping
… spiritual leaping
and astronaut Neil Armstrong’s words
… as he stepped on the moon
can be a gentle reminder that
“one small step”
can lead to
“one giant leap”
… for ourselves
… and who knows – maybe for “for mankind.”

Naturalist and essayist John Burroughs
wrote: “Leap and the net will appear.”

Let’s make 2017 the Year of the Leap!
The Year of the Leap
… into action
… into healing
… into love
… into hope
… into joy
… into peace.

Happy 10th Day of Christmas!
