Being Bountiful No Matter What For a long time now, For too too long now We have been listening to voices which are not our own Listening to ideas of worth and value and usefulness That are not who we are. We have taken on the message we have been fed and sold Not based…
Today you wanted to talk about “the economy”. How the economy affected my art and work. You told me you felt horrible and scared and mad. My desire to reach out and hug you was all I could think of. I found that optimism felt false, but that doomsday was also untrue I felt a desire to share possibility with you but no words sounded right.

The thing is, we really can have more creative vitality right now without changing anything physical in our life – at first. Because of course, it starts with our own thoughts. Our headset and our heartset. How we THINK about what IS in our lives. A lot of times, any free space we have to actually THINK is taken up with so much to do and so many stories of the past and so many endlessly looping thought patterns that a moment of stillness is the last thing on our minds!
When you were a little girl growing up did you:
a. want to be a nun and a solid gold dancer?
b. wonder why fitting in meant not acting like yourself?
c. want to save the world and felt like you actually could?
d. pretend your bicycle was a galloping horse?
e. wonder if being a bad girl was funner than being a good girl?
draw yourself with a crown on your head?’
wonder if being a bad girl was funner than being a good girl?
or were you one of the bad girls?
or were you BOTH the bad girl and the good girl?
