Vulnerability

I had a Rosen session today.  For those of you who don't know what Rosen is, this might give a clue, though it really needs to be experienced: http://rosenmethod.com/

What came up for me is vulnerability.  Of course, I am vulnerable; we all are, but I don't always feel it, or acknowledge it, but today, I allowed myself to do so.  I could feel barriers and fluidity, layers and levels, land and sea.  I feel that now, grateful I can feel.  

Adrienne Rich died Tuesday at the age of 82.  I saw her read at Book Passage a few years ago, probably quite a few now, and I loved her beauty and joy.  


This tribute - http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/29/books/adrienne-rich-feminist-poet-and-author-dies-at-82.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20120329 ends with these words:

For all her verbal prowess, for all her prolific output, Ms. Rich retained a dexterous command of the plain, pithy utterance. In a 1984 speech she summed up her reason for writing — and, by loud unspoken implication, her reason for being — in just seven words.

What she and her sisters-in-arms were fighting to achieve, she said, was simply this: “the creation of a society without domination.”


To "the creation of a society without domination".  To peaceful passing.  To the continuing creation of Equality and Peace!
