Walls

Do you know that feeling when you’ve been climbing a very high wall … and it’s very straight … and very slippery … there seems no way to get a foothold … you despair of ever seeing the other side …

But then something changes … almost imperceptibly … you aren’t sure at first if it’s real … the foot catches … but you are afraid it might slip again … only to find it holding … and there wonder of wonders is yet another tiny spot to cling on tight … make a little progress … the top just that much nearer …

That’s been my feeling the last week or so … as though footholds that never showed themselves have suddenly appeared … been offered as it were …

Small steps … and a very high wall …

But the other side is there … calling … waiting … asking me to come … as it always has … that part’s not new … just the sound is louder … the destination that much closer …

And it’s such a feeling … such a wonderful feeling …
