I’ve always enjoyed the story of the Ugly Duckling because it reminds me so much of my life experience. I spent a lot of time trying to fit in and belong somewhere – where I was accepted for who I am – with mixed results. I have always felt like I am standing on the outside looking in on life. Or that I am stationed at some distant outpost, looking across the horizon for friend or foe. It has been a natural way for me. So I have stopped trying to ‘fit in’ where I don’t. And I accept the gifts that come from being how I am.
With this post I invite my readers to visit my new blog – SwanneSong – Views From The Edge – where I will focus on sharing perspectives about what I see in this world. From a distance. Standing on the edge. You can read about this new venture in the “About” section at http://SwanneSong.wordpress.com.
The “road to discovery” has not ended, so I will continue to post here as well, at least once a month, in the spirit of the adventure of traveling. I’ve always intended that the adventure be infused with various forms of travel, whether it be in a daydream, night dream, shamanic vision, riding in an automobile on the Interstate, or just living the life.
I hope you will join me in both places.
