The Journey…again

Graham Greene said,

A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back, or from which to look ahead.

And so is the narrative of our life. The choice of that moment of experience will colour our future, and the memory of our past.

Which moment of experience defines our past, or will define our future?  Which moments of experience are the reference points for the narrative you call life?

One narrative  which particularly impacts us is our romantic relationships and the commitments we make because of it. It brings to the fore memories, hopes and dreams because of a shared vision.

I came across this poem titled ‘The Journey’ by Mary Oliver which speak to the journey of a relationship.

Journey - Mary Oliver

Here is a Soundcloud audio track of The Journey read by MJ Hummingway.

I posted another poem, by David Whyte, which incidentally has the same title ‘The Journey’ Click here to listen.

Life is a Journey. It is more than a collection of separate individual events.

Have an amazing journey as your soul desires!
