Surrounded by circumstances this week that stretched me beyond my capacities, I found myself not fully seeing; not really looking at anything as I was wrapped in busy thought. Wrapped is the correct description of how I felt. My tight, worried thoughts made a tight, worried and exhausted body and a studio that set neglected and alone with no connection. I had none to offer. But just before the week was over I came to a landing among an island of souls that unwound my wounded week. Every bright-eyed and beautiful face, one by one, softened my very soul; waking it to the warmth of humanity and away from the coldness of feeling isolated or alone. These human beings turned my mind and thus my body and my ability to fully live creatively 180 degrees.
Before the night was over I was soft again and breathing with new hope and bubbles of ideas all because I had connection.
I have connection. And I will be okay.
You have connection. Look for it. Seek it out. Be the first. You will be okay.
