To Be Inspired

Over Thanksgiving, in a talk, a friend expressed to me, "I want to be inspired."
And in that moment I realized she had summed up what I had been tracing around all year. All life.

I want to be inspired.

I do not itch (to be asked or expected) to lead or to follow.
I aspire to be partnered, teamed, a collaborant. Not to be the voice but a voice, among a sea of voices striving to communicate, contribute, not barker or broadcast. One particle in the wave, inspiring and inspired.

In those five words, she relayed it all.

This was (my) 2014. May discovery be a part of every year's life and every life's year.
