I woke up this morning with a song playing in my head that I couldn’t shake until I sang it aloud. It was 4:30 in the morning–First of all, so what the heck am I doing awake in the first place?! Well, if you’re looking at my website at this very moment, you can imagine that I was awake figuring out how to solve a major problem I encountered when I updated my website’s theme–all hell broke loose, and now all the custom solves I had FINALLY solved are just shot! Now, I’ve got to work quickly to fix what happened.
Anyway, back to the song. It’s one of the first songs I heard that celebrated birth and love, and it touched a deep part of my tender soul. I was very young, but I remember being struck by the heaviness of the emotions it stirred in me, and the kinds of thoughts it evoked–like whether my parents celebrated when they learned of my coming into the world, and how deep was the love between them at the moment I was conceived. Things I had never thought of before that moment, I’m sure. Womanness kinda things, youknowwhatimean?
Sometimes its nice–and necessary–to go back to the roots of what experiences brought you to the brink of who you are in this now moment. What were the touchstones along your journey that led you to this particular moment in time? How did you KNOW you were evolving, and was your growth and development more palpable at certain places and points along the way than at others? I’m just musing….feel free to share your significant spaces and touchstones. And enjoy the song; I enjoyed singing it!
