From chapter three of Inner Excavation by Liz Lamoreux:
If we open our eyes and minds to reflect on how we spend our days, what fills the world we inhabit, what we see over and over again, we gain insight into who we are in this moment, in the days before today. We can then determine who it is we want to be tomorrow.
Pictures ~ moments captured, memories collected
Details ~ the little things that constitute beauty and truth
Souvenirs from my day ~ reminders of life's magic
Words, stories, and thoughts woven together to commemorate our history, our place within life's flow.
These are the things I gather; these are the treasures I hold onto; these are the things that nourish and sustain me ...
the textures, sights and sounds of my day that I cherish,
turning them over and over in my hands, in my heart, for they contain clues into my soul, the pieces that form an answer to the question: who am I?
I am ...
a star in a sea of stars
my light no brighter than others
but its absence would reveal
a patch of darkness in the night sky
empty space that once held the light of this life's truth.
