    My husband is pointing at a little fish carrying a suitcase heading off to school.
    The 'little fish' is my daughter heading off to college on the east coast.


    from the time we are conceived
    we are growing, changing, moving in time
    we develop karmic awareness and
    sometimes gain wisdom through life lessons

    moving from moment to moment
    changing from season to season
    leaving behind a past or history
    intricate passages through tunnels of our own design

    we grow in body, spirit, mind
    until at the end of the road
    we merge onto a superhighway
    that is evolved beyond our comprehension

    growing does not end
    it reproduces, it manifests new generations
    growing is seamless as time passes
    growing awareness
    growing cycles
    growing old

    emerges, generates
    the gift of growing
    is in giving time
    a reason for being
