Journey Stone #70


Journey Stone #70  Respect

Certain level of admiration
that surpasses surface charm.
Often includes a bit of fear,
as with acknowledgement
of facing a wild creature with
formidable skill at survival.

Drawn toward, yet feeling
that other surpasses one’s
own limitations. Often holds
the qualities that create
a role model. Someone
to be looked up to.

Something we would all like
to receive, yet wonder if we
have earned. May be demanded,
but not always given.

  3. Food for thought in this one, Elizabeth. You, actually, are role model for me – your writing has such depth and intelligence, and there is so much wisdom in your words. I love what you are writing based on the soul cards – magnificent work.
