When I left my hometown just a few miles away 45 years ago, I left because there was no reason to stay. I was uncomfortable in my skin, angry, and depressed. Robert Frost wrote, “Home is the place, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” I had been told to leave my home; so I set out to find my own home and myself. Forty-five years is a long time in one lifetime; and I have come full circle back to a familiar place.
My work in Santa Fe was complete, and I finally listened to my body that had been sending that message. Now my body is healthy; it just needed some air and water. Being in proximity to my sister and my cousin is a gift of love, and I am grateful. This is a place of beauty, and I am appreciative. And as soon my work shows up, I am ready.
My spirit soars with the wisdom that I am my essential self and that my home is within. I don’t have to ask permission for my beingness. I just am, and I am home. At this time of the Equinox, I am feeling balanced and in synchronicity with the universal. I don’t know yet what my next work will be, but there is curve in the road just ahead.
