On the first Wednesday of the month my creative co-conspirator, Leia Durland-Jones, and I have been facilitating a program around that month's theme. As part of our Holidays & Holy Days program we each were given the opportunity to journal about what we'd been discussing. This is what came up for me:
Holidays. Holy days.
Days of Turning. Transformation.
Moments -- mountaintops and valleys;
Highs and lows. Birth and Death. And choices made.
To mark. To know I've marked these times.
Interrupt the everyday. Break the
Step off the path.
Stand. Dance. Weep. Listen.
We are called by something greater than ourselves . . .
called to something greater.
But it's so damned hard to hear,
so damnably hard to hear,
so god-damned hard to hear.
That's what this is about.
