What wisdom can you find
that is greater than kindness?
~Jean Jacques Rousseau
whisper to the wind…
inquiry for today~ it’s ok to tell your story of heartache and be held….
It’s been one of those days! I woke up, feeling grateful for another beautiful morning. But I felt an undercurrent … heavy-heartedly I started the day, to find a blackbird in my garden, lifeless, the light in his eye had faded. Why? Because it is what it is.I picked myself up and continued, after writing a tiny requiem for my feathered friend. But I knew there was no way, that I was going to get off easy … signs and signals directed me inward. Apparently there was some soul searching to be done.I puttered on and surrendered.
The flow brought me deeper and deeper … more layers to be shed, to get to the core. Is that what this Corona lock-down is all about, I wonder.I do not believe in coincidences … some things coincide, I am o.k. with that. So it was no surprise to me that I happened upon a song, so very dear to me. It guided me through the day, through moments and memories, some mellow, some with razor blade edges. It is what it is.I am blessed, I am thousand foldly blessed … to be able to let the torrent of grief and loss and emotions wash over me and then let it subside. I am blessed to have learned that to sit with my feelings is to give them a voice. I let them be heard … they are an intrinsic part of my being. I am blessed! And tomorrow … tomorrow the sun will kiss us again!
