a glimpse

haha, a glimpse, i wish i could say, it was of that black cougar or that black wolf. No i still didn't see those.
As i live on south facing slope, it's not very often i get to see the mountains to the north, when i am in walking distance of my home. Is north a metaphor for dark, is dark a metaphor for negative? What are my fears? I am always attracted to the north, i am not scared in the dark.
You know all that positive thinking stuff, made me scared of thinking negative. I use it to go to when i have to let go of things. I do go there, because i know to be in touch with my fears, i will overcome them. Why this longing for things to be right, even when we know the sun cannot always shine. Life is this rhythm. We wake, we sleep. Our heartbeat.
I wish i was light, even this, writing this, it scares me. I feel i should.... i should be counting sheep (Christopher i love your light-hearted post)

Who hath seen the wind?
Neither you nor I;
But when the trees bow down their heads
The wind is passing by.

Christina G. Rossetti

Who hath seen a black cougar
Off in the mountains to the north
Where our darkest fear looms
But if you venture there
It may choose to cross your path

Pretty bad but inspiring to me.
