At Lan Su Chinese Gardens recently you could hang your wishes, dreams, and poetry here.
I have thought long and hard about what I would have left there.
Maybe even a burden I needed to let go.
There are times when we need to let something go,
but don't know how to do it.
It is stuck right in our heart.
I struggle with it there, do you?
In the past I have written it on a rock and tossed it away
or I have heard of those that have written it on paper then burned it,
letting it go up in smoke.
The ceremony of letting go, releasing does help,
but then again it is a decision too.
The ceremony just gives it structure and says "it matters"
in a visible way.
I thought about sharing some of the words written there,
but then decided it was personal for the person that wrote it.
Do you know what you would write and walk away from,
leaving it behind you?
You don't have to tell me, but tell your heart.
Maybe write it down for yourself.
