She Holds Me
When the heart is too full, see what happens when you get barefoot, open your arms, and sing to the sea.
My view from the floor while moving around on the floor going through deep mental and emotional stuff.
When your mind is too much, stop, drop, and roll.
If I remember correctly, that's also what needs to be done when your body is set on fire. Deep.
I wondered when I'd start to draw the jungle.
When your heart misses a moment, remember everything about it and make it real again. We miss things for a reason, usually because it made us grow or breathe more deeply.
Take Me To The Flowers
After returning from travels, I climb a familiar hill near my home in Los Angeles. More often than not, I either notice something I've failed to notice before or appreciate what has changed in my absence.
When you're feeling bogged down, shake your perspective up. Add to a routine. Or better yet, unplug until you've stoked your own fire.
Red Bottle Brush Bees
In the mornings, as best I can, I move my body before the wheels of the mind really start turning. This ritual tends to help me move throughout my day with some sense of being a creature again... and does my heart a lot of good.
Los Hongos en la Selva
When given the proper amount of space, light, and nourishment, everything that needs to grow actually thrives. The insistence of life is real.
When in doubt of whatever it is that lifts your spirits, go for what gives you a feeling of being totally unencumbered. Let yourself loose.
