The final editing of my book is complete. What a wonderful thing to let go: the worry, the work and concentration. At some point I had to let go of the idea that it would be perfect. It is not. All projects, including life, come to an end and I must accept the fact that all I can do is try to do my best. What is done, is done. In the journeying I find my true self as I go from step to step, grasping with my toes the new ground as I release the ground where I have been. How could I walk otherwise? It reminds me of the Tai Chi way of walking. Each foot is conscious of its placement, rolling, feeling, balancing, grounding the body to the earth, then releasing to lift and swing forward.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
