Something that I would wish on anyone. I’m not sure how I slid into this, but once I was in that heart space…it was liberating and soul enlivening.
Not what I should do.
Not what I thought someone else might want or wish that I would do.
Just a simple question to myself and then quietly watching me, myself and I to see what made my heart leap a little bit or a lot at the thought of.
Discovery and adventure.
Two things that make me feel so alive, more than I knew.
What do we really want?
Not the ‘auto-pilot’ version of life,
but what are those things, people, places, doings
that make us feel vibrantly ALIVE?
Older than me, half my age, speakers of Italian, Dutch and Swahili (yes Swahili, spoken by one of the Dream Team members!) .
Inventors and dreamers, those with their coat of arms from generations ago hanging proudly on the wall, keepers of the earth and gatherers of the harvests.
They spoke proudly of their children, their ancestors, the ground that hosts their vines and twisted olive trees.
They allowed me to see into their lives and thus their hearts.
I grew rich from each such encounter–my spirit made richer by another allowing me entrance into their world–
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake. ~Sir Francis Bacon
