Dreaming Of The Next Destination
A dream view
I Am The Giant On The Beach
The other night I had the strangest dream; I dreamt I was a giant standing with my twin sibling on the beach. We looked out upon the sunlight sky horizon. The sky was blue and the water was clear blue too. The sand was white like snow. My brother said to me, "You can go anywhere you wish from here". I contemplated the statement and believed that I had been in Mongolia as I looked over the horizon and could see forever it seemed. Strange dream I know.
After awaking from this dream, I contemplated the dream and took a deeper introspection into this amazing dream. I thought about me and I thought about you. I thought about life and how we are each the giant masters of our destiny. We are each in control of our choice of destination. It is easy from here, to see that the steps you and I take today make for where we will be tomorrow.
To feel as though I was standing on top of the world and looking out into the horizons, gave me motivation and a deeper awareness of my reality. A reminder that I am temporarily and presently stationed in life at a stepping stone. A temporary stepping stone to the next destination. Although I do not have a ticket with a printed destination on it. However, I do have the drive and the motivation to be the best I can today with the choices I have made from yesterday. As my choices today will show itself tomorrow.
I believe I am smarter today than yesterday, as the choice I made yesterday got me to today. As I have had trials and tribulations. It is I the master in disguise that creates the reality in which surrounds me. You have this choice as well.
I am uncertain about publishing this article as it is more of a journals expression of my thoughts rather than a concrete historical review, etc. Possibly it is my way of connecting with you again. To remind you and I that we are all not that different . We each are masters of our journey, of our destinations. Whether it be at the beach, in Mongolia or in the good old USA.
Possibly this is just me, sitting down with you having a cup of tea. Strangers are just friends we haven't met yet. But maybe.....just maybe ..........you and I have more in common than just a writers head.

Giants On The Beach
I stand as a giant on the beach
Looking out over the sea
Wondering what is in this life for me
I contemplate and re-negotiate
Aware that this life is not all about me
But about how I can touch your soul
With a smile or a hand hold
Master in disguise
I stand grounded on two feet and watch the sun rise
The steps I am about to take are not written or performed by mistake
I live my life as I improvise
Taking steps so that I don't reprise a demise
Dreaming of my self worth
As I stand in transformation
Dreaming of being a giant on the beach
Foreseeing my future with a reach
Sometimes the future is better left unknown
As I strive with pride for the life I earn
Taking steps forward is the advice I teach
Love the life you lead
For you and I are the masters
Our destiny is not out of reach
Only a choice we make in action and in speech.
