Like A Version

I'm not sure where to start,
looking, always looking,
for something beyond the
in-between, that place where
nothing is familiar, where risk 
rises, even for a moment, 
until curiosity calls me to
let go and play at new versions
of me in those unknown spaces,
where nothing is certain, only
versions of me.

  1. I’m in this place currently. Sculpting the Version I see in the mirror. I really connected with this.

  2. New versions can only emerge slowly and are unlikely to have been buried or not activated. That is my view, Paul.

  3. I am, as, I am ! Versions are there, every now and then! Life proceeding, creates versions! The idea to ” play at new versions of me, in those unknown spaces, where nothing is certain, only versions of me” makes the Life!

  6. nothing is ever certain, and we are all evolving constantly … it will ease once you have time to get reacquainted with yourself!

  7. A wonderful insightful poem, Paul! ❤ We evolve as circumstances change, opportunities arise, or we have a new inspiration.

    I decided long ago that I could do most of the things I wanted to do if I did them serially. No way was I going to be able to do them all at once. I have reinvented myself several times in 72 years. My bucket list is getting shorter.

    All the best in finding the next exciting new version of yourself. ❤

  8. It’s so easy to be just “me”. My surroundings has so much impact on me and I am evolving gradually but I am just “me”.
