Sister, mother, daughter, lover, child
Your light needs to shine
There is a darkness when you are absent
When you don’t speak your truth
When you don’t dance with joy
When you don’t spread your magic on our land
You are every woman
As women, must journey beyond blame, shame, fear and guilt
Then we find our true power
And with it we transform the darkness into light
We find the truth, the inner beauty and the power to free us all
This resides within each and every one of us
Tell your daughters, your mother, sister and friend
There is something we need to be
It is time to awaken and to be One
Our brothers are waiting for us to change; for they don’t know how
We pray that we find the love, wisdom and courage to be all that we can be
We gain strength from you Mother Earth
We feel it in our bodies, We hear it in our voices
You can feel it in our touch
We are here to reclaim all that has been lost
It is time for us to re-unite with love, peace and gratitude
So that we can all lead empowered lives.
Transcripts from my session with Lorraine Flaherty, Regression Therapist
The trees are coming into leaf
Like something almost being said;
The recent buds relax and spread,
Their greenness is a kind of grief.
Is it that they are born again
And we grow old? No, they die too,
Their yearly trick of looking new
Is written down in rings of grain.
Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In fullgrown thickness every May.
Last year is dead, they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.
This remains to be one all time favourite poems. It affirms and acknowledges the cycle of life in such a wonderful way. Thank you Philip Larkin and welcome to Spring 2018.
ClicThanks to the “bomb cyclone” snowstorm I started this New Year unexpectedly gifted with an extra couple of days in New York City. Since I was unable to enjoy the city, I decided to do some digital house-keeping, deleting all emails and files that were obsolete, unwanted and irrelevant. As my inbox was downsized I realized that I needed not only to delete these emails but also to cut some of them off at the source: the source being the unsubscribe button. As I deleted subscriptions I rarely used and subscriptions that I forgot I even had, I felt cleansed in a self -congratulatory way.
I reflected on the noise that is created online, the noise I join in with, can get lost in, am amused by and even sometimes confused by. Spam has taken on new digital dimensions. Traditionally the word may bring back memories of Monty Python sketches or unappetizing school meals, yet I refer to it as the ongoing stream of marketing material that arrives in our inbox and is posted on social media.
