I chose it in the hope that i would make stronger in person connections this year - i feel so nourished by my scattered tribe on the internet and yet there are times when to just meet for a walk in the park or a picnic would be awesome... i surround myself with people who don't always fit, by whom i feel abraided and yet, there are people who live near me who light a spark in my and i want more of that in my life
the word connection is also about maintaining the connection within myself,, with my inner wisdom, with my dreams, with the little girl inside of me, with all of those things that hold the precious essence of me but which i discard in the face of disapproval ... i want to hold that connection sacred, hold that connection as a primary responsibility and not some optional possibility for another time..
i also want to connect with spirit, with nature with the truth of the world that i find there and connect with my heart's longings to be home... i know that home is where spirit and nature lies together - one is, after all an expression of the other
i also want to acknowledge the connections others' have... their truths and allow them to be ....
i see these connections like a thread that may get worn away by things that dishonour the truth of me. i see that my life's work is to honour this thread making in me, to keep the threads strong, to keep weaving every new thing that speaks to me...
and connection is exemplified by horse. horse is alive to the moment, always listening always ready. horse is a being of energy and reads all that is going on around it with a nature that is made for action but which can come to trust stillness
i honour my connection to you and thank you for coming here to read and sit with me - may our connection grow stronger this year too
