YOUR STORY STUDIO

How many of us are familiar with the concept of a ‘studio’?

 

As a kid, my mother would retreat to her studio (which happened to be an illustrators desk in her bedroom window) and spend hours drawing. She would always emerge full of life and inspiration. I loved it when she went to her studio.

I have come across many kinds of studios in the years since, but each one has the similar magic of providing a safe, quiet space away from the noise of daily life within which we can pause, reflect and enjoy time working with our gifts.

RESIST-REPEAT-RESTORY

This weekend I was gifted with a 48 hour period away from my normal story.

I have this happy memory; a memory from a time in my younger life when there weren’t many things to be happy about.

EVERY EARTH DAY

Forget time, granddaughter

At least your human sense of it

Instead, remember cycles

 

Experience moves in cycles and flows in rhythms

It dances and expresses itself in ever repeating cadences of creation and destruction

 

Every Earth day is a cycle

Every Earth day is special

 

Every moment you have is a chance to lift up and celebrate

 

Celebrate the moment of quietude

Celebrate the breath moving in and out of your body

Celebrate the essence of life pulsing through your veins, connecting you to every other being in creation

 

Every moment you are truly present and aware, you are offering a gift to the world

Every Earth day you are here to be that gift

To offer yourself up just as you are

Whole and incomplete

 

In process

 

Every Earth day is sacred
