Clearing a Pathway

Of the many new things I learned on my vacation and of the many things things I was reminded of, this one thing is likely the most powerful. I have an enormous need to connect with Mother Earth. She feeds me. She balances me. She gives me hope. She gives me joy. She transitions me through sorrow. She reminds me to be grateful.

Of couse it’s quite easy to be inspired when you spend each day of your trip moving from one breathtakingly beautiful sight in Ireland to the next. The question that play forward is can I maintain that same level of connection to Mother Earth when operating on the battlegrounds of my everyday life?

unnamed-6Today I started a new project. I’m not going to tell you what that project is but I can say that it weaves together many things that are important to me. The workshops for this project will be many and diverse. Today’s workshop was a grand scene behind our apartment. There will be a story to be told at some point I’m sure. I don’t know if that story will be weeks or months away, but I do know that if the project goes as I hope it will, I will have taken a huge step at converting that battleground that I mentioned above into a playground. My job now is to continue to clear the path along the way. Stay tuned…


About Jim Herbert

I've been wanting to write my whole life. By age 45 it had amounted to nothing more than a storage locker of half full journals and a lot of unfulfilled dreams. Then Paris in the fall of 2011 happened. It was the catalyst I needed to consistently blog. At first I had a hard time hitting the publish button, but now two blog sites and over 300 posts later I'm hitting my stride. I'm also a budding speech writer. I've recently been heavily involved in the Chicago Storytelling scene and have also won the Chicago Toastmasters Area 66 International Speech Contest. Check out our website at for more details about the amazing things that are happening in my life. A book or two are nearing completion. With another Paris trip on tap for Easter of 2015 I can only imagine that there are Infinite Possibilities on the horizon!!!
