Zen, and an Unfamiliar Passage

by: Scott Mitchell


with 4 comments

Unexpectedly, a paradigm shift occurred. A bend of possibilities. A collection of ironies that I’m not sure I’ll ever understand. The moment when everything a person dedicated their hopes and beliefs in suddenly changes and a forced redirection of life and everything lived for begins. I know I’m only one of many to experience this, but even in this great moment of despair I decided to begin occasional documentation of this new journey. I hope through writing, searching, and the support of friends I can find the life answers I seek. I can only hope that all I learn in my meditations of all that is happening will help to build the dreamed of future.

Thanks for reading and feel free to comment about anything. As a note and as my poetry reading friends already know, I’m slow with my comment replies, but I greatly appreciate every comment. Please don’t consider my delays as a sign that your comments are not important.

The above was what I wrote when I first created this blog. I now use it for whatever I feel like writing as I decide when and how to continue the journey.
