To write a list of the things i’ve learned… hmmmmm
Today i am learning to start a sentence with a word other than ‘So’.
I am not enjoying the idea of writing a list.
Lists are for groceries and household items,
Things to do before going on a trip.
Or are they?
I want to name some of what i’ve learned and relearned,
Like an uncovering of what was once there and then forgotten.
Images of my teachers pass by me.
My twenty three year old son.
Through him i relearn gentleness, understanding, acceptance,
Compassion and how Love prevails.
I am relearning how to be more fluid,
As if i could still float in an amniotic universe.
I am learning to be willing to learn.
To be teachable, to dive deep and trust what i will find is precious.
To accept that nothing i write will ever be perfect.
This moment already past
Is easier to grasp through words than painting.
To write and post something everyday reminds me of sketching.
To learn and relearn about presence,
About being enough, trusting, celebrating myself,
And letting go.
