Oh the sad state of affairs that is my old blog. My intentions were true... my will on the other hand...
So many things have changed since I last publicized my musings. It did not seem right to start where I last left off. And I don`t particularly want to talk about all the in between... I am in a state of moving forward and THAT is what I want to write about. Of course I will reference the past, everyone has one after all, and it has shaped who I am and what I do in my present.
Enough philosophical waxing for one post, don`t you think?
So what am I up to these days? We are all together back in Misawa, Japan, making the most of our time as a family living in a foreign Country. There are so many opportunities to explore and learn and CHANGE... it can be overwhelming at times! But after my heart surgery I really started to see the world in a different light. It is so cliche, I almost hate to admit it, but going through such a major event really does change you and your perspective on life. And that is where the title of this blog came from. There is the obvious literal meaning... an `open heart surgery, pace maker` kinda thing. But figuratively... each day is just one beat in time, followed by another. Life moves forward. It is so easy to become bogged down with past `beats` (if you will) and miss out on THIS day. I don`t want to miss a second, because the beats don`t stop, they pass by in the blink of an eye.
Oye, there I go waxing again.
So here we are, we three in Japan, our little Family. As unconventional a road we took to get here, it is my world and a road I am happy to be on.
And Noah... there are no words...
