Love. It began with Love. The kind of love I feel we all have intrinsicly laced throughout our DNA. A love that gets bogged down by insecurities, supposed injustice to ourselves, too many other voices drowning out our own unique one, ect. So I stopped. Thru no preconceived plan or purpose other than to be still for just a minute & truly try to understand how I fit, how WE fit.
That's where I got on the ride...and ooooooh what a ride it has been.
Short story: We (leftmindblind) started designing & making jewelry this year and went to share our pieces in Nevada City during Mardi Gras on Valentine's weekend. My beautiful sister Jodie accompinied Brett & I up there on Saturday, which has a whole story unto itself.
We awoke to a sunny Sunday morning and parked Enuf near Wolf Creek in the public parking lot off of Broad St. I stepped outside to breathe in the mountain air and promptly met Nicolas, who had just pulled into the parking space next to us. I said 'Good Morning' as did he & conversation began to naturally flow from there. We shared some stories with one of his being about the Monks that come to the area every February to pray & bless the water (I'm sure there may be more to it, but that was what I needed to hear at the time). They had been there the day before and had made a sand mandala. Nicolas had a little of the sand from it in a baggie when he asked us to join him at the creek, then asked if we would be okay with him sharing a blessing/prayer for/with us. We of course agreed. He proceeded to pour some of the sand into the creek & we all shared a profound moment(s) of energy & love that set the tone for the rest of our day.
It was an amazing start to all of our day, and that was just the beginning. It has became another marker in this, my life of lessons.
There is more...so much more, and I want to share the love. I hope we find connection thru our stories, to ourselves & to each other.
I will continue the telling as I am able, but I figured the best way was just to start.
The journey continues...
