April Pondering -

I just completed an eight week writing workshop with Samantha Wallen.  It was on Empowering, Creating, Discovering, and Realizing Your Unlimited Potential.  I sit with that this morning.  The workshop gave me permission and trust, trust that I have something to say and share, something which only I can bring forth, and the awareness that each of us bringing forth is important for ourselves, and the world.

I am reminded of this quote that Marion Rosen, founder of Rosen Method, used to inspire her students.

"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

- the Gospel of Thomas

I am reading and savoring Jane Hirshfield's wonderful new book, Ten Windows, How Great Poems Transform the World.

I am with this haiku by Issa.

On a branch
floating downriver,
a cricket singing.

It seems like everything I need to know is there, both captured and set free.  I revel "On a branch, floating downriver, a cricket singing".
