(winter on the Ca. coast-a few weekends ago)
I can't believe that our year in California is almost at a close...it seems like we just got here!! I am wondering where all the time went to, why I didn't get together with the girls (Patty, Jane and Pat H. ) more often and how much Tara has grown. Is it just me or is it that as we get older time just flies by at lighting speed?? I also realise how much I have grown through blogging. These honest and deep connections that I have made with so many of you has sustained, nourished and supported me through some very difficult times. Thank you!! You know...before I started my blog about 2 years ago, I was a new mom coping with a lot of things. I was isolated, trying to cope with being a brand new mamma and being bombarded with a lot of negativity that left me angry and spiraling into a depression. But once I took a leap of faith and plunged into this brand new world of the blogging community...my life literally changed!! I started to get a different perspective, become stronger and more mySELF. Now...with these few weeks ahead of me that are filled with crazy packing, moving etc...my blog has become that much more important to me...a lifeline with connections, support and therapy...uh...I mean my creative outlet:)
Oh! and I came across this delicious poem last week...I have been thinking about it ever since. I wrote it down in my journal and love it to pieces.
"Moon marked and touched by sun
my magic is unwritten
but when the sea turns back
it will leave my shape behind "
-from A Woman Speaks by Audre Lorde
I love Audre Lorde...her warrior/poet spirit touches me to my core. When she wrote her Cancer Journals she really worried that she wouldn't have time to complete her work...that she had left so much unwritten.
It inspires me to continue doing my work now while I am able. Just some random thoughts here and there. I hope you all have a great day!!
