“To Drink the Wild Air” is all about constant life transition. My best friend the dictionary defines it as a going across or equivalent to TRANSIT, changeover, passing, conversion……all these words have a very precise meaning and are spot on.
Transition can be anything. From bad to good, from good to bad, from darkness to enlightenment, from clear understanding to confusion or from confusion to clarification. A transition is a very individual and a very personal thing. It is about acceptance or disapproval. And the beauty of it is that it can be applied to anything in life.
There is no textbook for transition, nobody can teach transition, it comes from the inside out, it is the strength and courage living inside of us and the reminder to everyone about the inherent willingness to get up and discover the route of the unknown. Not everyone is cut out to enter a transition in life and so life can become a very predictable playground within a convenient set up. A so called rut, defined in the dictionary as a fixed or established mode of procedure or course of life, usually dull or unpromising.
Since I have packed my soul and my courage once again to follow the route of the transitional highway I have met many interesting people. Some have never left the rut and are afraid of any transition even though the rut is not all so friendly and comfortable. This is when fear is stronger than faith.
Other people never had a rut. They are in constant transition from the day they were born.
Some people had a rut and decided to enter a transition to change the course of life. I guess this is my category. My rut was exciting in itself but nevertheless it was a rut and now I am looking for a new but different rut or will my transition be an open ended one? This is up to me! As long as fear does not overrule faith I should be fine.
