I caught only the slightest and cloudiest glimpse of this Super Moon and had no answer to her question: What dreams do you wish to bring to fruition? Actually, that is not true. I have a list of dreams I long to bring to fruition, however I am feeling intensely unsettled in so many of these areas that the tension between the question’s impulse of completion and my inability to act in any concrete way about brought me to my knees this past week. I do love these two dream boards though, and have abandoned the companion written journaling that I used to do with them. I’m letting the images alone speak for me and to me, and I’m not worrying about words. I also love the fact that I am continuing with the journal form I started last month. Thank you to Jamie Ridler for introducing me to this practice – it’s so, so good.
I’m off to see Brene Brown with my mom today. It’s her birthday – my mom’s, not Brene’s. Have you seen her new book? Wow! I still remember walking along the beach listening to this podcast and thinking “This changes everything.” A year and a half later, I have read everything she has written, taken her “O” course and listened to a huge chunk of what she has recorded and I can say the same thing about her current book: This changes everything. If you haven’t heard her interview with Elizabeth Gilbert, take 30 minutes today and listen. It might just change everything.
Big love from the soggy mountains of western North Carolina. xoS
