walking with the black dog…

to know myself

is to know the shadow

I walk with,

to know the subtlety

of her ways,

to recognise euphoria

can plummet

to despair

in a moment, and,

without warning,

that manic tendencies

are a signal,

to slow down,

and stop,

to face the shadow,

to call her by name,

to take stock,

regain control

to walk calmly

with her again….

she is the black dog,

and mostly we are able

to be friends…

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
