Myriada

I may be making a word. From the ancient Greek “murioi”, meaning 10,000. Now, simply meaning countless in number, or an extremely great number. 

I use it today for the aspects of self we experience, both in present as well as over the stages of life. Myriada – the innumerable and ethereal life in transition. 

Perhaps there are those who exist as singularities, a perfect synchronicity of ego, superego and id. Or of childhood and futureplanning existing on one straight path. 

My life, however, has been super-curvy-wervy, and I still am looking for that true north. My true north, the Me I was created to be. 

As I set about once again to record my thoughts in “blog” form (I can’t help but hear Hank Moody’s voice when I write the word blog), I’ll cast this entry off with a quote from Martha Graham:

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
