In The Air


Leaves are changing and winds are blowing. Everything's starting to look and feel a little different and it seems like it's everywhere.

Change is constant, yes; but, sometimes change can be more self-conscious. Sometimes we actively seek change and try to do something different for whatever reason and sometimes someone chooses change for us. These times can be especially disorienting because we know what we don't want to be anymore and we have a vision of something better, but we are who we are; the change we want to be is wholly theoretical until we wake up one day and find that things are different.

But we still have to live in the in-between where everything's new and scary. And it seems to me that the most important thing to do in those times is to approach the easy answers with a certain skepticism and wariness. Because if it's huge enough to shake you from your foundation, it's not a simple fix.

Anyway, that's what I think I was trying to say when you asked . . .

As I'm reading this, Tracy Chapman's beautiful song "Change" is playing. Huck loves to hear this song and he shouts, "CHANGE! CHANGE!" during it, so I have to believe he would enjoy hearing your blog, too. I'll read it to him when he wakes up and let you know.
