I am feeling a bit better tonight for various reasons. For one, I tend to take action when I hit point zero. In addition, my dearest papa is visiting me this weekend. He will "cheer me up" he says :) Thirdly, we have an incredible group that we are privileged to share time with this week at work. Native women and one man. Today, we invited a colleague of ours to drive across a few mountains to create dream catchers with us. We spent all day making them with mellow tunes playing in the background. Time was slower as it always seems to be for me when I am on the reservation. My hyper anxious anglo spirit is forced to slow down and listen.
It took me all day to slow down. I hope that I will be more in tune tomorrow. Making dream catchers today helped. Mine is still unfinished. I need to add feathers- my goals and dreams. I will work on this tonight.
I am so grateful for today. It made me get off my adminstrative and statistical throne and become someone who listens and challenges herself at every moment again. This is where I am the most inspired. Plus, it helped that my hands were busy. I have endorphins in my hands by the way.
A special thank you to bluegrrrl and carol gee. You respond and support me when I need it most. The blogopshere has been a wonderful addition to my solitary yet committed and focused life.
Complete solitude. That was an extra challenge that I faced this weekend. My somewhat removed yet loved and much effort at trying to understand partner decided to start dating someone else. I cannot commit to remaining in my current stopping place was the deciding factor.
It's time for my feathers, what I yearn for in my life, what I hope to give...
I have the best intentions to take another photo of the finished product. Until then, Buenas Noches, Bonne Nuit, Massah Alkhayr...
Que suenes con los angeles,
