Glitter in the Air

We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us. Marcel Proust

Did you see Pink's live performance of her song "Glitter in the Air" at the Grammy's?  You can find it on Youtube or download it on iTunes.

I have it on my nano ipod.  I watch it often.  It gets me every time, reveals something deep and speaks.

I hope you will watch it.  It will tell you everything about this journey I am on, and comes closer to saying how I feel than any words I could write on this page.

As she walks through the audience and takes her cloak off, it's how I felt when I got my diagnosis and started on this path, had my surgeries, started chemo, lost my my hair.  As if I shed my old life when the cloak fell to the floor and she stepped out of it.

For awhile she spins in the air, hanging and spinning in the air.  This is where I am now.

I am waiting for when I will be baptized in the water like she was, and will come out a new creature.

All new and brave and wet and fearless above you.

At the end, the crowd roars.

Will you roar for me when I am transformed?  Will you recognize me? 

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls a butterfly.  Richard Bach

There will be a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.  Louis L’Amour
