VENTURING OUT….on my tipping toes


It has finally rained.  I am hoping the rain will ease my unease.  But I am still venturing out, stepping out even if it’s on my tipping toes…tentatively at first.  I will be more bold when I land and not fall, when I know that the shoe will not drop.

Last evening we rode our bikes all the way to Broadway.  I stopped traffic a couple of times but I did not fall.  Even though I knew I have time, I felt pressured.  So I got off my bike and walked it across the intersection.  I can do that…stop and walk across.

So many lessons I have learned from riding a bike.  I have time.  I can stop and do it another way.  So impatient I have been. I rush at life the way I used to ride a bike.  I don’t take the time….for directions, to listen, to look, to see….often interrupting, finishing other people’s words, sentences.  I am better now.  Sometimes I can remember to wait.

The raindrops are falling steadily now.  It is soothing.  I am sipping dandelion tea from my zen teacup.  My roast is in the oven.  The letter is in the mail.  I can wait.  I have time.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
