Walk

Sometimes when going through a separation  or any major life change, music can speak right to your soul.  This particular song seems to be speaking to me, haunting me. "Learning to walk again" about sums up my life at the moment, but without any negative connotations.  

My morning walks with Chief help to clear my head and give me time to listen to my inner voice.  I can honestly say, this has been the most surreal break up I have ever experienced.  There's no anger, malice or fighting, and I feel very at peace with where I am and where I am going.   Additionally, my son seems much  happier and optimistic about his future as well, so I could not be more relieved.    

I"m looking forward to my sisters visit next weekend to show her the new place.  I am going to kick it up a notch this weekend with unpacking and organizing.  I need my organizing and de-cluttering Guru Jennifer and a trip to the container store!

Walk
By:  The Foo Fighters

A million miles away
Your signal in the distance
To whom it may concern
I think I lost my way
Getting good at starting over
Every time that I return

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?

Do you remember the days
We built these paper mountains
And sat and watched them burn
I think I found my place
Can't you feel it growing stronger
Little conquerors

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?

Now
For the very first time
Don't you pay no mind
Set me free again

To keep alive a moment at a time
But still inside a whisper to a riot
To sacrifice but knowing to survive
The first to climb another state of mind
I'm on my knees, I'm praying for a sign
Forever, whenever
I never wanna die
I never wanna die
I never wanna die
I'm on my knees
I never wanna die
I'm dancing on my grave
I'm running through the fire
Forever, whenever
I never wanna die
I never wanna leave
I never say goodbye
Forever, whenever, forever, whenever

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?

I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
