between the steps....

it's been more than a week since the solo @ project gallery... 
the time seems to be moving some what slower these days.....
the transitional stage between the steps.....
comforting but intimidating in a strange way..,...
searching for something new but same time longing for the familiar ground that once i run across...
well again... it's a time to face myself.....
