"Sometimes in order to see the future you must understand the present moment, weave it in to the nature of your existence"... It takes time to cultivate creativity and community.
In this past week away from social media, i've been tucked away in our little cabin, friends have gathered in our home to sit for tea, leaving me much time for making homemade soups and weaving in those ideas that have started to fill my soul, remembering those moments from our trip to Malaysia.
The rainy weather has been so welcoming even with mercury retrograde directing a forward motion, the forecast still feels instinctually slower, so the wood gets piled up, our fires burn with herbs and medicinals scents and steamy pots wafting with ruby red colored tea. Our dear tea sister Koa traveling down from the north and staying with us for a few days, makes more of a reason to spend these winter days home; cooking soup, sitting by the fire, pulling animal medicine cards and reminiscing over our dreams.
In all honesty, I still haven't comjured up how coming back to journaling should go... I used to love seeking the next big article, to interview those I thought to be inspiring. something told me to stop over the last year, so I just stopped. I mean shifting perspective.... to know it's all part of the process, to understand the creative dynamic of giving away your whole self and knowing that losing potential in all that you write is such potent work.
What I am surprised with, is having to say to myself here, okay it's Monday and or Thursday... you have to post something up... so believe me, I'm just stoking the fire, it's going to get going.... and when it does, it's going to be awesome.
