going for the gold

going for the gold [1]

by c. a rousel

going for the gold

going for the ring

going for the (second) chance to dance and play and sing


  • rings come in infinite sizes, shapes and configurations.

  • as life takes us through cycles, we get a limited number of chances to go for the gold.

some choose to watch from the sidelines.

.....some ride close enough, but forego the chance to play.

…….some choose to support and encourage others, throughout the trip.

………...some try for the ring... miss, then quit.

……………..some try for the ring... miss, and then plan strategies for future success.

…..some get to experience the momentary euphoria associated with earth-bound achievements.

sometimes, the ring is right tHere, waiting to be re-cognized as an opportunity.

  • every path holds the opportunity to become more self-aware, and we can’t not learn as we go...
(for the gold)
