Flopping Around in a Net

Not another goldfish story?! 

Yes and no.  Well, yes. 

One of my goldfish went over the last waterfall into the basin where the pump is.  It will eventually be covered up so s/he would not survive.  In order to save his/her life, I went in with the big net and caught it.  It was flopping in the net, obviously in distress. Even though I repeated, “It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay”.   

In retrospect I was likely trying to calm myself, at very least in addition to the fish.

I was saving the fish’s life. Yet…

It's An Emergency! Emerge and See.

It's An Emergency!  Emerge and See.

I am quite moved by all the #metoo’s I am reading on Facebook.  So grateful that we have found an opening, a place to begin this conversation.  I am hearing about years and years of aggression, defense, confusion, pain, shame, and rage.  

I am experiencing this moment as women wanting to once again, emerge with all the power that the sacred feminine embodies.  It is an emergency.

Fifth Sacred Thing

Developing a workshop for women yesterday I found renewed inspiration in a poem that changed my life years ago.  Discovering the work of Starhawk, the novel Fifth Sacred Thing found its way to me through a friend. After reading it I remember buying copy after copy and shared the book with anyone who would listen.  It was the first of many to wake me up.
