The climb





It's a long way to the top
to the sunshine and vista that awaits
but at least the climb
is light and airy
with bright colour
and vegetation
Enough to make any uphill journey
that much more palatable.
And if, on the way,
there is the promise
of companionship
the destination
is immaterial
- for the journey
is where it's at.
Lightness of step
and the thrill
of shared moments
become the focus
of all that is real.
Time disappears
and distance diminishes
as souls meet
in that space
where weight is lifted
and communion
takes place.
And right then
we can hear
God's mirth echoing around the airways
of that sacred space
rejoicing that, finally,
we get it!

Hi Liz,
I appreciate your post very much. I found you through a lovely photo you used of water from the rock. I am leading a six week interfaith writing journey during Lent based on the Exodus narrative (I am Jewish by background and spent 10 years as a Unitarian Universalist minister before returning to a writing centered life). I would love permission to use your photo in a flier to post locally (nothing published). Would that be okay with you? Also, I would love to invite you to visit my blog and website. I sense we might be in the same spiritual orbit and I love Scotland. I live in New Hampshire, USA. Thanks so much. Cheers,
Leaf Seligman

Rev Leav,
I am very happy for you to use the pic. FYI the pic was taken near Braemar in the Highlands of Scotland. I look forward to exploring your blogs.
Blessings
Liz
