Circles of Support

Letting go of everything that feels squeaky. Holding a conversation with the absence of the things you yearn for and the presence of the loud experiences that exist. When you stretch yourself between presence and absence you hear god rhyming with your breath. Finding yourself in everything you touch on with your thoughts, feelings and words.

The Five Stages Of Grief

This is our dance with grief, love... Denial. You build a sandcastle. A wave washes it away leaving behind it a pile of grains glued together with salty water. You announce it’s just a mistake in the timing of the waves and continue as if nothing happened. Anger. You build another sandcastle. The wave washes in and leaves behind it a muddy paste which you resent. You blame yourself for not being better prepared. You shout at the government for ignoring climate change.

Brittle Vulnerability, Tender Fear And Freeing Your Heart
