Archetype for Expats

The Fool doesn’t look back
or define herself by what
she used to be.
She comes to the new land
to begin a fresh life.
She doesn’t name herself
ex-anything, not she.
Forward she steps,
off the cliff of control—
into the unfamiliar,
into the mysterious.
Standing with immigrant ancestors
she names herself
immigrant, and true-blue

  • I love this! What a wonderful choice to make anytime but especially now, in the third act of life. Beginning anew, great stuff.

  • I love walking off cliffs.
