Older and heavier

Some people as they grow up become less … . Other people as they grow up become more.*
Eugene Peterson

Today I am 63 years old and I am determined
to grow up,
For the contents of my life and the state of my heart
to outweigh my possessions.

I am my weaknesses,
I know this so well,
I am more than my weaknesses,
And this is my exploration.
May those stronger parts in me become
denser, thicker.

The wanderer becomes one with himself or herself and the universe. We connect with the energy of all living things. We live according to our inner nature.**
