I am constantly amazed as I walk thru each day what a solo experience this life is.  All the noble friends, teachers and lovers can’t be inside us.   They can stand with us, navigate for us, support the space….  but only I can trudge the road, put one foot in front of the other and make whatever I make from each step……


“For, after all, every one who wishes to gain true knowledge must climb the Hill of Difficulty alone, and since there is no royal road to the summit, I must zigzag it in my own way. I slip back many times, I fall, I stand still, I run against the edge of hidden obstacles, I lose my temper and find it again and keep it better, I trudge on, I gain a little, I feel encouraged, I get more eager and climb higher and begin to see the widening horizon. Every struggle is a victory. One more effort and I reach the luminous cloud, the blue depths of the sky, the uplands of my desire. ~ Helen Keller
