You Cannot Be Found

Tweet This Post
When I was a teenager, I hung on my wall a banner that read..."You cannot be found, if you were never lost."
I had forgotten all about this until I started digging through some old memory books over the holidays.
Although, at the time I thought I was that person...the one that was never lost. In triumph I hung the words over my bed as a daily remember of how not lost I was.
But in fact, I was lost...and wouldn't find my self for decades.

You may have taken your time to find yourself, Allyn, but you did a monumentally fine job once you did. Such talents.

Having said that, give yourself another twenty years and you may feel as if you found yourself anew. That's one reason those of us in the boomer and beyond generation say we wouldn't trade what we have for youth.

Very best,

Allyn, I must agree with Carolyn - you sure don't act lost these days, and I think your frequent demonstrations showing us who-you-are serve as a beacon for many.
