I’ve been away.

Deep diving my own story. Driving from one side of the country to the other. Talking with shamans and dream teachers and poets. My mother died and I climbed into her blue Hyundai Sonata and drove to my daughter – New York to LA. On the way out, I thought I was doing a marketing trip – selling my Soul Call Cards along the way. By the time I was headed back home, I knew what this was: a vision quest. I cancelled the workshops. I turned off the radio. I followed the voice of the GPS the way I follow my yoga teacher – led along, moving without thinking.

I was free.

When I got home, I drove to my son at the end of Long Island. Then, I drove to the Gulf Coast of Florida, where aquamarine waves lapped at my ankles and a group of soul sisters (plus one brother) massaged my heart with stories.

After ten years in virtual space, I was starving for land – physical land – and for people, flesh, blood and bone people. Hands and eyes and bodies.

In the process, driving, I came up with a plan: a way that I might live now. A way I might come more fully into my feet, my hands, my body.

I took the plan inside – into my journal and into my dream life. it bloomed and morphed and rebloomed. Full workshops formed and dissolved. Bright poems spilled onto the page.

I am flooded with the freshness of it – the people and places, the ideas and stories. I have so much to tell you. And I know you have things to share with me.

Let’s begin.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your moms passing. Sounds therapeutic to drive freely across the states, to your daughter, and back again, to your son. Full circle. Like a free form hug gently embracing you.

    Praying it was healing…. and that you are doing ok. I’ve missed reading your posts. ❤️
