I've been searching inside of myself - trying to find the grounding of what I want/need.
I've been distracting myself with the busy life of Boston - chasing opportunities.
I've been trying to be more present in the moment - meeting new people, staying up too late dancing to Brazilian music and making things with new mediums.
I took a trip to the Smokey Mountains and feel in love the lush mountains (again), the pitch dark nights and the quiet mornings.
I need nature - I need space - I need the calmness to process it all.
I took a trip to the ocean and feel in love with the mysterious life of tide pools, the way the horizon loses it's depth when you look long enough and the way the crashing waves somehow give me answers.
I need to explore - I need to be silent (sometimes) - I need to s l o w down.
I'm reading a new book about energy and healing, "Light, Emerging" and I read the words this morning,
"What is it that I have longed for and not yet succeeded in creating in my life?"
What are you longing for? What do you desire? What are you holding back? I hope you say YES this week. I hope you slow down. I hope you find love and beauty in it all.
