Day 6: Reflection Boston to Barbados - “Home”

This is one of my favorite poems.  It gives me the courage to race into the light, accept change, embrace my destiny and know that no matter how high I fly, I will always land with my feet firmly planted on the ground.
Keeping Things Whole
By Mark Strand
In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.
When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in   
to fill the spaces
where my body’s been.
We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.
