I wanted to write today, but did not have the opportunity. These words were shared with me, and are in line with the story I shared in yesterday’s What I Learned Sundays – Paths. Enjoy…I understand the thoughts, wants, and ideas shared here, and I want to share with you.

I looked into your eyes and couldn’t see past that moment. How was I to know that being so short sighted would have lead to losing you? I wandered through the everyday and somehow learned to put one foot in front of the other. I had found a place with solid ground. And then you were there! The ground shook and the air escaped me. I was transported to a time before. A time when YOU were my air and solid ground. Are you really here or is it just another mirage on the horizon? Now I look into your eyes and see forever. How many mountains will I have to climb to get to you? At each summit I face another peak. Standing on top of this mountain and seeing the range that lies in front of me I scream a promise to you…I will not stop!

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
