the only way out is within

Waters were finally calm today, celebrating the bday on lovely Lake Austin, what a treat. One action encourages the other, heals, detoxifies and electrifies the body and mind at their deepest levels.

Purpose Proservation

Traveling often for work now, I credit in-flight entertainment for slowly bringing me back with the times, as I tap into the TV deficit show by show, film by film. Flying back from Gatwick yesterday I was amazed at how much the Biographies in particular demonstrate the immense challenge of not allowing what we do to become who we are.

On the day when
the weight deadens
on your shoulders
and you stumble,
may the clay dance
to balance you.

And when your eyes
freeze behind
the grey window
and the ghost of loss
gets in to you,
may a flock of colours,
indigo, red, green,
and azure blue
come to awaken in you
a meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays
in the currach of thought
and a stain of ocean
blackens beneath you,
may there come across the waters
a path of yellow moonlight
to bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you…
