This is another poetry and prose blog. I started it after having a crazy lucid dream on Boxing Day 2011, which led me to the wonderful spiritual and writing teacher Julie Tallard Johnson, embarking on her year long Initiation Wheel process. It was the serendipitous presentation of an opportunity to clear the way for living life in a more authentic, joyful and awakened way. In the end it took two years to make my way through the Wheel. Honestly? I’m still making my way through. Continuing to learn and re-learn. How to live with purpose, and a sense of humour. How to be human. I once had a lucid dream in which I was offered three opportunities to ask what the secret of life was. The first answer told me to have fun, and look after my little ones, the second came in the form of the Fleetwood Mac song ‘Everywhere’! I think my sub-conscious, and all that lies beyond it, was gently telling me to lighten up, take care of what’s happening now, and continually come into awareness of the connection of all things.
So this is another poetry and prose blog. It’s about making and finding meaning. It’s about wanting to be everywhere. It’s about taking the risk to express and to grow. It’s about connection.
