Ugh. Awake at 1:30 in the morning...

Went to bed at 6:30, maybe 7:00? The kid came and crawled in next to me, even though I knew I'd be up later. So he's lying there behind me, computer-glow splashed across his cheek, as I tap tap away at the keyboard, wondering if it's worth trying to say something. It's that stillness, the one I seek so often in this crazy traffic-land community, and I feel restricted in it - because I wanted to write something. Because the Morning Pages have been lovely, and reading over all that old crap was depressing, and I want there to be something new.

The labyrinth stuff is great, and I think it's very important as a vehicle to understanding myself, but it's less the meat of a study than the potatoes. Or perhaps the veggies... Oh, yes, I like that.

It's really about this Nexus thing, isn't it? Getting it done, and seeing what I've got. It's about digital imaging, god help me, and self-publishing. Making books. It's about studio shots of ladies getting to know themselves, and understanding what that means. We will reveal our secrets...

                                            I am a Goddess of Dark Places

                            in blood, and in sacrifice. I am your Holy Anger.

                  I am not I but Her

through me, She dances my feet

        coiling snakes through my spine.

                                      Wound through the fire at every turn

                     drawn into it -


    in waves

        where the winds blow.

Excellent. That was worth something. So the meat is Nexus, the potatoes will be my foray into more modern imaging methods and print options. Kinko's, here we they even HAVE Kinko's here? And I've got my veggies...actually, now that I think about it, I'd like to rethink my food analogy. The labyrinth is more like the fruit, imaging is the veggies, and Nexus is the whole grains. Tune in next week for body mind and spirit brownies! If only...

A two page proposal, that's all it is. A healthy breakfast. A clear and focused thought. Yum.


  1. Welcome back my friend. I'm honored that you're sharing your journey.

    PS If you really want to follow the analogy, I have a blog friend who designs labyrinths. Let me know.
