The idea for this space grew from observations friends have offered.
They admire the deep way that I explore the many facets to a situation. The way that I put things into words often brings an “ah ha” moment for them. I had a friend once propose that we switch brains for a week, so that I could have a rest and she could experience life from the vantage point of someone who felt and thought so intensely.
“Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty and sadness and remains far behind yours. Were it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words” Rainer Maria Rilke
I have found a good measure of rest most days, (without switching brains)- but it has been very hard fight. What I’d like to offer here is a space where others like me could consider ways to engage their depths with grace and balance. And for others like my friend, to offer encouragement to dip your toes into the rich, deep waters of your heart and mind.
I am here because I have something to say.
And that is enough.
For what are we all doing here on this earth but to become. To speak. To create. To desire, enjoy, grieve, and shout. To bear witness to the mystery found within.
