Provincia

Anything beautiful


and with a far-reaching past



has had to soar upwards


from hurling depths towards

DOUBT.

The name 



comes from the Latin words

PRO - on behalf of

and

VINCERE - to triumph and take control over -

hence the word

PROVINCIA.

She was once a bird in a cage


a servant


under strict Roman rule.





But Provence 



is all the more beautiful today because of her

brief captivity in the annals of TIME




for she finally paved her way through history




towards HER OWN horizon 





in order to reach the shores of peace.





But aren't we all at one point or another


challenged as such 

by the 

GIANTS and VICTORS 

to whom we could 

easily yield 

our Fears? 

I took a chance early this week and stepped out of my 

comfort zone



and propelled my way into the presence of 

experienced writers.

We left walking on the firm and lonely

stone-cold path of reality




coming up with only one conclusion.


Keep writing 

and learn 

to fly. 


I know I will reflect back on this time of my 

life and say




so that she could have the SKILLS NECESSARY to 

soar towards her goal




and claim 

PROVENCIA.
