This is what I am doing tonight with some hot tea, of course. It is freaking cold outside, but luckily we are all stocked with clean, fluffy blankets All I can think about is metal, herbs, gardening and dogs – as you can see with my book layout – I am even passing on a wine tasting tonight that is how much I am preoccupied and well… completely exhausted too. Especially since day 3 of my cleanse was a total fail what more could wine have hurt, right?! But alas, I am staying in and starting again tomorrow. That is all I can do is to begin again and it will help that I just got bananas for my smoothie in the morning!
This weekend is more studio cleaning and then the next weekend… the big day. I can hardly wait. I thought I would be doing more jewelry and I will, but all the ideas that are coming to me are something different. I am just going to go with it. I did ask for divine inspiration…
ps. Please send protective energy to the wolves in Oregon. There was another one shot today for the amusement of an Idaho hunter.
My heart feels absolutely sick as these are my heart animals.
Here is a little Rumi for your night.
“There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street,
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.
Open your hands,
if you want to be held.
Sit down in this circle.
Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepherd’s love filling you.
At night, your beloved wanders.
Don’t accept consolations.
Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover’s mouth in yours.
You moan, “She left me.”"He left me.”
Twenty more will come.
Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.
Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.
