So fellow travelers,  life can change in an instant. One phone call can send us plummeting from a high to low point,  a conversation can shatter our hearts. At times like this I am mindful of the teaching I strive to live by: it’s not the events but how we react to them that determines our experience.  Often I take to the trails to clear my head, steady my nerves and open my heart.  On one such walk, I came across these gulls and they shook loose a poem.



Heroes like seagulls

seem to walk on water yet

it’s all illusion
