It was a cold day today. It was - 40. No matter what scale you use celsius or farenheit, -40 is the same temperature on both scales.
I live at the base of these mountains. It is very beautiful but at this time of year our nights are long. And although I love winter, I do enjoy the warmth and light the sun brings.
As I mentioned in my previous post November was a difficult month for me. The difficulties continue, but what is different is my approach, as I work hard to understand, accept and move on.
Creating always helps. My creative release is usually with visual arts, but a few nights ago I created with words.
I sit quietly in the cold of the winter,
blocking out the parts of life not deserving of my energies.
I gently nurture the broken open vulnerability I feel inside,
as the days, now all too short, will lengthen with the light,
taking over my being and letting my heart
fill once again to overflowing.
On the visual art side, I am working on a couple of pieces
that are experiments. I will let you know if they work out.
