16 March 2015

It is not that I'm so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer.   [Albert Einstein]

This is key, I BElieve. Somehow or other, despite NOT learning from DOing it, I’ll find myself answering too quickly. BEing uncomfortable holding tight and waiting and seeing.

I have so many things that spark my curiosity. So much so that I often chase rabbits down their little holes BEfore I see the predicament I’ve got into.

Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.   [C. JoyBell C.]

It’s a funny thing, the way things unfold and BEcome whatever they are. Even the “bad” stuff holds me in awe of its infinite possibilities.

I love you, Currie

I'm just catching up here and I feel guilty to have neglected such treasures for so long. :( But I am here NOW. That's what matters. And oh, so many gifts here Currie. I am in awe of your art AND of you. So wonderful to see your work again... big hug to you, my friend. xx

I have experienced more wind against your face, soul flying, epiphany moments from the trauma and pain in my life than all the rest combined. How odd, but true. I find I am still occasionally learning wonderful new things from events that happened decades ago. Yes! Yes! How true. :)
