Veiled Mystery

 

My mind wanders far
Across the desert to you
Veiled mystery

 



I should acknowledge – I do more “la-la-las” and “na-na-nas” than sing!
So mine is a ruminating melody ~~

    I took this Positive Self Seminar once.. and one they I had to do (all were matched to their particular– feelings of short coming) was to dance like a Belly Dancer.. At first I was apprehensive, then I started to let the music flow and it felt liberating and I felt pretty and desirable (serious self esteem issues-:-) Love you Poem and the fresh memory of the good things I took from that seminar.

      When I first studied Marco Polo in grade school, I was fascinated by his travels. I always wondered what it would have been like to follow his path. Thank you for visiting.
