Beauty in the season and more light to come…!

Darkness brings reflection.  But also, I found myself slowing down more than usual the past few months as my heart, body and mind needed to rest a bit after the intensity of the last several years.  I kept chipping away at all the chores left by both my mother’s and Cliff’s passing.  Piles of unfinished business.  I read a passage by Louise Nevelson earlier today which totally resonates with me,

“I believe that we can clean our minds out and not carry too much  waste.  Anything that’s cluttered is a constipation of some sort.  Anything – a house, a closet.  If it’s clear you can put something in it, but if it’s crowded you can’t put anything in it.  So I always started with that kind of premise.” – Louise Nevelson

I have been working – lots – it feels good to be inspired.  May winter solstice bring blessings with the promise of more light.
