Have you ever had a ‘glimpse’?

Not sure what else to call it except a ‘glimpse’… You know, you are driving or watching t.v. or washing the dishes and all of a sudden you realize you are in a day dream and you can choose to keep dreaming. The things you see, usually of a future setting are profound to your life in some manner.

I was driving earlier today, from one errand to another, and I was struck by such a ‘glimpse’…what a feeling. If I was a snake who shed his skin for the very first time, that very moment when the new day’s sunlight touches my newly earthed scales, that is what it felt like during this ‘glimpse’. How else can I describe it? If I was Superman nearly defeated, only to soak the Sun’s light one more time, that feeling of knowing that you are Superman and capable of anything if you try, that was my feeling today.

Though I am not ready to share what future in my life I saw, but now more than ever, this innate feeling of helping others, will be made true. I have strived in my life to attain my dreams, even before this ‘glimpse’, it felt like this is what I was meant to do; help others. I do not want to succumb to any other dream, I only have one.



so slept the snake,
being poked and aroused
the anger sets in, but quietly so
the guard has been let down
so attacks the snake,
so slept the hate.
