The pronoun “it” can refer to a lot of things. It can refer to life, success, achievement, milestone, or anything. The point is, whatever it is, it is a process.
I got Paths As Yet Untrodden published on December 30, 2017 after some months of anxious effort, charting new territory and perseverance. I went to social media to announce the publication.
Guess what followed! Depression.
Believe me, there was a lot of excitement as I put together the reflections in the book. And as I shared again and again in the course of the months of preparation, it was about my experience and how those experiences were shared with other people. I put that out there for anybody to read.
Then what? That is the question I am asking myself. Heraclitus is quoted to have said, “no man/woman steps in the same river twice, for it is not the same river and he/she is not the same person”. I have been and I should be changed – transformed – by the experience. And you, the reader, should also experience transformation in some way because you too stepped into the river.
The important thing is that this is an ongoing process, it is not a destination. I have already started on my next project, not just to go over the depression, but to continue on the journey.
Details will follow shortly.
