cold/hot

 

Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly.
– Pablo Nerunda

June (in Connecticut) started rainy and cold…

the greening vines just kept growing and changing color…

the word LUSH comes to mind…

we went straight from cold to hot…

hot cold 1

I put the air conditioner in the window almost half way in (6/11)…

cold

sometimes the spelling gets a little wacky…

 

spell

yet we still know what it’s saying….

because….

inside we always know…

I’ve spent the greater part of the last two months…

going slow…

{ in Norway there is this

maybe they’re on to something!}

listening…

practicing this…

rest

You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come, to take you back.

Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through.

Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow and free.

Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day.

Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.

John O’Donohue

Excerpt from the blessing, ‘For One Who is Exhausted’

some days I get impatient for things to go faster…

One of the interesting things I am learning…

is how much I have been attracting ‘fiery’ energy into my life…

because I have felt it ‘pushed’ me to be more…

because I felt I needed to be more…

I am learning to trust my own needs…

finally learning to accept my own pace as ok…

maybe, not just ok…

but truly – SPECTACULAR!

finally embracing my own flow…

 

love

It’s interesting that I feel a growing sense of grounding…

a sense of removing something toxic…

something that has caused inconsistency in my life and relationships…

something that has caused much inability to be in my own purpose…

That’s the way things come clear. All of a sudden.
And then you realize how obvious they’ve been all along.
~Madeleine L’Engle

not sure where it’s leading…

as of yet…

maybe nowhere but here…

and somewhere…somehow…

I think I’m completely ok with that…

all good
