I used to think it was important to know stuff.
To BE "in the know."
To have a handle on things.
In fact, when I would go someplace, a new-to-me city, for instance, I'd bury my nose in a map rather than looking around in awe and amazement.
But over the years I have learned to revel in the unknown.
To enJOY NOT knowing and BE enthralled and deLIGHTed by it, too.
My Life and I have changed so much this past year that I no longer prefer Knowing over NOT Knowing.
Certainty over diving into the depths of the Unknowable.
One year ago today, April 6, 2012, I sold my car and BEgan my New Life as a person without wheels.
I had no clue, it turns out, what a magical World I was stepping into.
[I even admit to BEing utterly clueless how wondrous that spur of the moment decision to sell my car could possibly BE!!!]
What I thought of as a means to "afford my Life" and "buy me some time" has turned out to BE a magic key.
A Journey that has taken me to the center of JOY, a place where there is no map, where all I CAN DO is BE captivated by awe and amazement.
Life is like this, I know; one thing suggesting another but then it is NOT that at all.
While it's NOT all peaches and cream, and here I refer only to dealing with the public transportation side of my new Life, it is daily awe-inspiring.
I sometimes wish I was still the little girl who could cover miles on her bike, but I'm content to walk. I've nowhere so far to go that the walk isn't a JOY...
I thought I knew all the trade-offs and good in this, yet clearly I did NOT.
How about YOU?!
Where DO YOU sit along the Knowing & NOT Knowing spectrum?!
I am challenging myself to write out loud for the 91 days, 1 April through 30 June 2013. I'm pulling questions out of hats and giving them some room to romp. If you have a question to share, please email me...
