The Deeper Business




About beauty:

I feel more beautiful today than ever in my life; even while limping around and wrinkling my brow in the frustrations inherent in the small moments of my day no one sees but me.

Can’t cut vegetables? I grimace to get more muscle into it and it still doesn’t work.

Then- compassion comes.

Compassion for my self.. my complicated girl-self on her hero’s journey.

My face becomes softer and my eyes too. I like how I look and the vegetables are still there.. uncut.

I keep getting the gift of one more step forward

And I am never alone anymore as I have felt so often in my life. I have my tribe around me.

I aspire to the sublimity and Grace of THIS

No matter how many grimaces or how much surrendering She takes.

    A friend just shared your delightful site. Thank you for sharing a vision of it all working out and being just fine. And the role of art! xo

    You could not be more beautiful, more radiant… it isn’t possible. The birds outside are singing their morning song, agreeing.
