Be Kind to You
This week has been particularly challenging for my inner muse. Too much reading/listening/watching the news has my edges feeling sharp and pokey. My spirit feels consternation and worry, sadness and despair. And this is AFTER efforts to avoid news. Eee gads. Imagine if I were diving in and absorbing it all. Whoa.
Some time ago, a dear friend gave me a copy of John O'Donohue's To Bless the Space Between Us. Sometimes I just open it up and see what inspiration and wisdom it holds for me. Today's was a doozy! Read on:
And so I am wishing you a weekend of "turning aside from it all", as we celebrate mother's day and embrace spring, where everything is new again and we can perhaps "find our way home."
A reminder about the latest READER GIVEAWAY! Post a comment on this blog (or social media - tag me) about what YOU would/could/might do to express you inner WILD CREATIVE if you felt no rules at all! The winner will be announced next week, and will receive an original piece of malarkey. Because you, you and YOU are my favorite wild things. :)

Hey, Jen, I will gladly and boldly turn away from it all to celebrate, embrace, and dare to find our way home!

Carol, the "industry of distraction" is a real thing! So much wisdom and insight packed into one poem.

I like this idea. We do sliding scales with...dentists, hm..other providers. I love art, of course, and would love to be able to afford pieces that, if too high, I would not be able to purchase..Good luck! Tell us how it goes.
