Key to Forgiveness

I come at 6 AM to capture my thoughts and find I already have. Everything I wanted to write is already jotted in my tiny notebook that fits in a pocket and I can carry with me anywhere. Not to worry.

Its all right here in my pocket.

Forgiveness is a marathon, but it is less a thing with a fixed finish line, the crossing of which signals success, than waters you navigate lifelong. The measure of success is that you keep paddling.

Today I depart the Retreat on Forgiveness at Laity Lodge, where I’ve been well-fed and cared for and given much, especially the ability to see these are waters I’ve been paddling a long, long time. And I plan to continue.  I choose to.
