In the beginning you are a simple tourist filled with awe and you try to capture that feeling to take home. You cannot believe that it is all yours as far as the eye can see.
The Room Without Walls is enormously large, and taking at trip to the other side of the room becomes an inspiring and breathtaking tonic. Just what I needed to get away from the chaos of this world. This side of the room is quiet and empty with a vacuity that calls to the heart and mind. You cannot hide from who you are nor can you morph into something camouflaged. You are naked and it is freeing as you begin to forgive and to love yourself a little more.
The dangers can be seen long before they arrive to challenge your spirit. You have time to to square your shoulders and face the music. And sometimes the music is so sweet that it brings tears to your eyes.
