Busy week! Lots going on at the camp here. I'm helping a dear friend and coach put together her bio for her website and what a good time I'm having. I love extracting someone's gifts and putting them to words so as to acknowledge her in a bright light. What a treat for me! It's like giving presents, that kind of feeling. I'm paying attention to little details like Miles milky breath, the tearing cherry skin between my molars and the sweet scent of the new lavender. The natural world in my yard and around its perimeter is full of beautiful surprises. The previous owners planted many things that die out in winter's cold-tall and hovering cosmos, little teeny purple pansies and columbine are appearing out of nowhere in the beds. The stellar jays are losing their feathers all over the place. And the mountain is being spared the heatwave felt up and down the state. I sit in many circles of women, lucky gal am I. Yesterday I sat in my most endearing circle of all. In a place of complete trust, respect and sisterhood, one can only reach for her highest self. Sacredness abounds, fruit falls on the ground, all around. Look out, Geissel, I'm feelin snarky.
