The Transition

The moment of change between the comfortable and the awkward. This is where I am. The clocks have fallen back and the damp air is making my bones ache. I am moving more slowly and the flexibility I had once taken for granted is now a luxury. I am in transition.

I am watching my son become a man; taking the actions that will alter his course. Telling me about the goals he has set for himself and the worries he carries each day. We are in transition.

There may be a gift to this stage if I pay close attention. A recognition of where I once was and an appreciation of the place I am now. In between the young and the old. In a place I have aspired to reach; away from those who would disrespect my nature.
