Good Morning!!

What a morning this is!  I began by cleaning up the kitten's poop and then, the bird poop on the deck and, then, I watered and welcomed  the sun to all the plants. 

Jane and I spoke this morning about our vision with the book.   Our presentation to the editor opened us more clearly to what we are doing and what we hope to create and convey.  I come this morning to a thesis written on Essential Motion, a work created by Karen Roeper,  and Eyes of the Beholder,  created by Karen and Jane.   This thesis is amazing, and supports what Jane and I came to yesterday.   The editor wanted to know more of how Jane and I became friends.   Well, there it is - Eyes of the Beholder.  

Here is a poem Karen uses in Eyes.  I present it because I feel my life rounding into the most beautiful whole.  I came to Sensory Awareness 13 years ago.  That led me to Rosen and Karen, which led to Eyes and Essential Motion.   Through it all, I was writing and recording my own thoughts and what I reached for as growth.  Perhaps, today, I come to a place of peace.  In this moment.  I am enough.   There is no search.   The ball of myself feels complete, trusting, whole, and there is so much more to go.  I've just begun to rock, and roll.

Love after love

The time will come, when, with elation,

you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door, in your own mirror,

and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was yourself.

Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.

          - Derek Walcott
