tangled up in blue

So now I’m goin’ back again I got to get to her somehow All the people we used to know They’re an illusion to me now Some are mathematicians Some are carpenters’ wives Don’t know how it all got started I don’t know what they’re doin’ with their lives But me, I’m still on the road Headin’ for another joint We always did feel the same We just saw it from a different point of view Tangled up in blue..... bob dylan

So now I’m goin’ back again
I got to get to her somehow
All the people we used to know
They’re an illusion to me now
Some are mathematicians
Some are carpenters’ wives
Don’t know how it all got started
I don’t know what they’re doin’ with their lives
But me, I’m still on the road
Headin’ for another joint
We always did feel the same
We just saw it from a different point of view
Tangled up in blue….. bob dylan

as i careen down this zipline that is life, i am surprised at a couple of things the most. one is that i cannot zip back up the line i have just come across on. somehow when i started this journey it never dawned on me that i might want to go somewhere once i reached the other side. yet on the other side is where i find myself and there is so much more i want to explore.

the other surprising element is that i have changed more deeply than i could have ever imagined and am ready to let go of so much i have held dear. and frankly there are things – people places and things- that i need to let go of even though i may not be quite ready yet.

so let the music play, let the dance begin and we’ll see where the footwork and the practice take us.

  1. I’ve read, from people long sober, much longer than you or I, that at some point in our sobriety, a purge will be needed. Be that things, or people. You’ve made the jump to something new. And like you said, you “can’t zip back” but you want to explore further, so why can’t you do that? Sometimes we grow past people, in sobriety and out of sobriety. We are on our own specific path. And sometimes we find that we have to let them go. With love and respect. What is the second part of Step one … We are not only powerless over alcohol and drugs, we are ALSO powerless over people, places and things. And if those people, places and things are not serving you where you are now, it is ok to let them go. Take the time that you need, but don’t allow them to impede your progress.

    I am with you
