What is the new horizon in you that wants to be seen?*
Eventually everyone learns his or her own best way. The real mystery to crack is you.**
A vibrant life –
“Sparky,” as Roald Dahl labelled it^ –
Includes continually setting out towards
Moving towards yet another horizon of our lives.
We may only know it to be a curiosity at first,
A call to explore something more,
Before we come to hold it as pure treasure.
Through the innocence of beginning we are often seduced into growth.*
Life is exploring horizons,
A surer way of bringing us to each other.
