There are moments in this life, in this brief blip of existence, that stand above all the others, that rearrange what you thought of as beautiful, that define it right then and there. As I look back over my own blip of life, there are some that immediately stand out, that rise to the surface like sea foam on some stormy ocean, but to be quite frank, one keeps rising even above that. One, is the lightning strike above that sea foam, the bolt of electricity and shock that connected me (once again, long story) to everything bigger than myself. I remember it, without any photographs necessary but damn it’s nice having them, as clearly today as the day it happened, I remember the smell, the sight, the temperature of the air. I remember the sound of water under that old bridge, I remember the way the dirt rustled under her boots. I remember the quiet sashay of emerald fabric, I remember the bagpiper warming up far in the distance. I remember turning, facing the light she’s always been, and truly falling into awe for the deepest and most true point in my life. Everything else, from the moment I turned, fell away. Everything else faded, all sound, all life, it was her, and it was me, and it was slow-motion in such a perfect and painful way.
This is so lovely. ❤️
This experience, this community and the peek inside is absolutely worth $5 a month to me, and I'm happy to be here. Thank you for your words, as they have inspired me and gotten me though some difficult, dark days. Thank you for being you.
Beautiful! I'm so grateful to be here in this community.
This is breathtakingly beautiful. I'm happy to pay for your work and words. You light the fire.
Never apologize. This community is priceless.
I actually really respect what you're creating a container for here. A space for you to be vulnerable on your terms....and require an opt in, because not everyone wants that level of real in their lives... not everyone is ready. Also, an energy exchange...access to your craft with terms of not taking it for granted. In addition, a container to hold space for the opting in of a return on vulnerability where you hold space for us to go deep, with frequent invitations to do that if it feels right. It's kind of an amazing idea...and I love that this opportunity exists. I wrote last night because I was inspired by one of those invitations and it probably wouldn't have happened otherwise. So this is a garden, too. You plant the seeds and we cultivate them. 🌱
