Things of Joy, Beauty & Awe
A Random Collection
This week I am taking some time off to put the finishing touches on a summer project which has to go to the printer on Monday.
If all goes according to plan the “55 Flavors of The Feminine” Practice Deck will arrive just in time for our September “Flavor Immersion” in Portugal.
I’m wildly excited about this deck and will post a preview as soon as it is finalized.
So, while I am writing the booklet to go along with the cards, here is a random selection of things I’m loving at the moment. I hope you’ll enjoy them!
Regular articles will be back next Sunday. Until then!
A Sudden Crepe Myrtle Explosion
Nourishes the bees and provides awe inspiring beauty.
The Hunter and the Fox Woman
Pre-Pandemic, we would spend a few weeks at a time in Amsterdam teaching our workshops. One night Steve pulled this video by author and storyteller Martin Shaw of The House of Beasts & Vines out of his extensive “post-workshop de-escalation” library.
It’s one of my favorite stories and ever since I watch it on occasion to savor one specific line - like a great song it always delights me freshly. Can you guess which one?
New Album Obsession
I’ve loved Meshell Ndegeocello since hearing her very first album. Way back when - what feels like a lifetime ago - I lived in walking distance to the Viper Room and would go to see her live. Her newest album is my current evening wind down soundtrack.
A Rediscovered Poem
is always the same; wherever Life
I want to stick my toe
& soon my whole body
into the water.
I want to shake out a fat broom
& sweep dried leaves
I want to grow
It seems impossible that desire
can sometimes transform into devotion;
but this has happened.
And that is how I’ve survived:
how the hole
I carefully tended
in the garden of my heart
grew a heart
to fill it.
