>> I learned <<
deer are magic,
& so is the moon.
to be still and listen
& trust my intuition.
that the woods wash the anxiety away.
that we are made of stardust.
chicken butts pucker incessantly.
yoga helps; good food helps.
alone does not mean being lonely.
to burn intentions in the fire.
sunshine makes me happy & also sleeping bags.
that barred owls sometimes sound like monkeys. (when they really get going)
the names of trees & birds & wildflowers.
that shadows are blessings,
the mind is a mirror
& you can choose your own reality.
something about a new paradigm.
to open my heart.
to sleep with a corn bag.
the light makes the shadows.
to remember my roots.
at night, I am a butterfly.
