She says, "Similarly, my work as a psychotherapist involves heightening awareness and encouraging openness; looking at what else is possible rather than clinging to what was, or what isn't! In changing one's relationship to the material, seeing something differently - whether the paint and image of the artist or the historical/experimental stuff of the personality - transformation can occur. Seeing old material in a new context, letting go of rigid interpretations, allows for fresh meaning and movement, shifting us closer to what might be."
Today I was looking at a bush. I saw one little bird, then, two, three, four, and more. The tree was filled with birds that my eyes did not at first see. Earlier, I saw four quail walking down my street. Slowly, they slipped into the brush. I look now at air; I look between the leaves. What am I missing? What can I create?
Here is my poem for today.
the water in the bay moves in and out
while the trees reflect
still in their stance
essence conducts soul -
fish in the dance.
