Walk Their Way

Close your eyes.

Watch your breath for a few moments. Watch how it comes and goes.

You are standing in a meadow of tall grasses and wildflowers.

In front of you is a narrow path winding through a sea of yellow daisies and lavender.

Behind you is the same.

Gently, the wind blows – through the grass, your hair, the trees.

Ahead of you, in the distance, you see there is someone on the path walking toward you.

As she gets closer, you see she is someone you know.

She is your great-grandmother.

In her hands is a journal.

She hands it to you and you take it.

The cover reads, My Life.

She smiles and continues along the path that winds behind you.

Ahead of you, in the distance, you see there is someone on the path walking toward you.

As she gets closer, you see she is someone you know.

She is your grandmother.

She takes the pink scarf from around her shoulders and drapes it on yours.

The silk is soft against your skin.

She smiles and continues along the path that winds behind you.

Ahead of you, in the distance, you see there is someone on the path walking toward you.

As she gets closer, you see she is someone you know.

She is your mother.

She takes the necklace from around her neck and hangs it around yours.

You open the silver locket; your pictures are inside, hers on the left, yours on the right.

She smiles and continues along the path that winds behind you.

Ahead of you, in the distance, you see no one.

You turn around. The path behind you is now in front of you.

In the distance, you see a little girl standing in the meadow.

Your mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother are standing behind her.

You smile and walk their way.

Open your eyes.

Walk their way.
