Blood Moon Eclipse & Poor Man’s Capers

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”

~ Rumi

The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe.”
~ Joanna Macy

How do you express a life-changing event?

Sitting in a cob cave-shaped bench, looking at Nasturtiums coming down from the children’s garden: Magic

Indescribable beauty of Cedars and Douglas Firs touched by the dying afternoon sun: I just finished teaching a Standard First Aid course, but it all hurts, rain, rain flowing through my eyes…a hummingbird, poor man’s capers, approaching steps

Comfort, a moment that will last forever, a true friend’s shoulder: Warmth

Later that evening Giant Moon turns orange, smiles to us on Earth: we are suddenly all Children, laughing at silly comments and eating home-made chocolate: My Tribe

An Ent and a 14-billion-year Tree surround me: is this for real? She’s me younger, he’s a wizard opening magical doors

The Milky Way over us and I keep thinking in a bunch of Nasturtium seeds and two hands…happiness. If I could only bottle this forever and take it with me!

I do: these moments are forever…

There are places in this world that act as portals. Places where we find our tribe, even if for a short moment in time, tell us we are not alone, show a mirror where we can see our own truth

Why do you stay in prison when the door is wide open? “

The First Aid course is over, the wound just cracked open and the crying won’t stop until a decision is made: going back where I belong
