stumbling through the dance

"the only way
to make sense
out of change
is to plunge into it,
move with it,
and join the dance."
-alan watts



this year has been an interesting journey down new and unfamiliar paths. changes in work. friendships. companionship.  sometimes i forget to stop trying to make sense of it all and simply allow it all to unfold. usually,  this finds me tipped head first into the quagmire of confusion.  but sooner or later i manage to pull my head out my nether orifice and I stumble forward again.

so i pick up a needle. stub some thread through its eye and begin again. these stars have been quietly whispering for snowflakes to join their gentle dance in the quiet sky above the man standing in the snow.  

here's to the warmth that blankets your spirit when you engage in doing something you love again after a long hiatus...

  2. thank you, mo! it is good to stretch my fingers...and mind...again.

    i still have a small pile of crow cloth patiently awaiting transformation. perhaps these actions and meditations will conspire to flap some feathered wings into manifestation!
