This is a blog in search of a purpose. In life I’m exploring the question, “what matters now?” and this blog will jibe with each change in the journey.

I’ve been starting with a manifesto for myself, based on exploring what matters to me. On a trail run in June these words came to me. I’m considering them my manifesto for the moment.

I move because if I’m standing still, I’m dying.
I create, as my soul knows no better way to be free.
I love like it’s the only thing that matters.

This is a pretty good description of the actions and people at the top of the list of what matters to me.  It’s simple enough for me to follow. I move. I make. I love. I think in bullet points when I run, I guess.

There are other things I need to work on. Forgiveness, non-attachment, being more open. I could go into the deeper list of things I value and could focus on, but for the moment, I’m working on prioritizing life around the things in this list. 

For the moment…
