Do you hear the music?
Hello Everyone! Kahil Gibran is one of my favorite poets. Have you read The Prophet? I highly recommend it. Also, who tuned into the Adele concert last night? Honestly, I tuned in this morning as my partner was sleepy and the hounds were snoring peacefully. I laugh at myself sometimes when I realize I’m the loud one. The woman who was nearly silent for many years. If you missed Adele, never fear. She’s streaming on Paramount Plus. You can get a trial offer and cancel if you are low on funds. She is so fierce and yet the girl next door. So open about her struggles and how she has learned to let emotions move through. I remember when I started let emotions stay, sit with them, and feel emotion emote or move through like waves. It’s been around three years ago. I’ve found not running from the uncomfortable or seemingly unbearable is the best way of finding peace and healing and aren’t we here to feel it all anyway? I’ve found I am stronger than I think. And everything is in flux. This too shall pass. I love Kahil Gibran’s definition of love here because as Dr. Maya Angelou said, “Love liberates!” Indeed it seems to be when we grasp too tightly, pain comes knocking at the door and the ego wants to steal the show and hold us hostage. I’ve been thinking a lot of what it means to be free. What does libération look like to you? I see it as spacious as the sea and sky. As open as a heart that cracks open for all to see. We have the opportunity to feel what our neighbors feel. To express our common humanity. To lean on one another in new and creative ways. And to feel the magic of being alive. Do you hear the music? Let’s dance! Big love, Amy
