IMG_0307It is now the season of summer, bonfires, swimming, late nights outside, road trips and vacations.

Of all the many things I am looking most forward to this summer season, the thing I am yearning for the most is wandering aimlessly.

I will wander aimlessly around my neighborhood, in thrift, hardware and antique stores, at the beach, on trails and throughout my garden. For there will be little schedule, little pressing on my time, less ‘must dos’ and more freedom to do and go as I please.

For one, such as myself, who loves to fill my time with intentional, purposeful activities, this change of pace can seem to be quite the departure from the norm of the rest of the year, but it is as life-giving as the busyness of the rest of the year.

It is in this season of wandering aimlessly, that my creative batteries get re-charged, that my soul gets re-filled, and my mind gets cleared.

I bet I am not alone in this yearning!

This yin and yang is present in the lives of most of us. It is the daily living of opposites and extremes. We sleep, we work. We eat, we fast. We create, we do the mundane. We love, we … sounds like the juxtaposition of life’s experiences in Ecclesiastes 3.

born, die
born, uproot
kill, heal
tear down, build,
weep, laugh
mourn, dance
scatter stones, gather them
embrace,  refrain from embracing
search, give up
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
tear, mend
be silent, speak
love, hate
war, peace.

a time to be busy, and a time to wander aimlessly.

The season of wandering aimlessly is upon us.
