I rested in the pre-dawn darkness hovering between despair and simultaneously wondering how I would be able to make this any version of better.
I thought of writing practice but didn’t even begin to feel inspired much less motivated to move my pencil on the page.
My phone told me Collier (Odd Poet Girl) was on-line so I hopped on Periscope. As always, my kindred shared her brand of enlightening motivation. I knew soon the #Peri10k Shareathon would begin.
I participated in the shareathon experience, taking notes and allowing my mind space to collaborate and create, nodding and commenting and sketching.
The Peri10K Shareathon speakers helped me remember why the work I do is so important.
My work is Your rebirth as well as our collective Renaissance, my work is to come alongside and unclog those stuffed up places that don't allow our words come onto the page and in turn, add to the love and light for all.
It is more important than ever to be in the space of renaissance and rebirth. With that, my lights came back on and the lousy to evaporate.
It has been a few hours now and I can guarantee you from the souls of my feet to the top of my head, turning those lights of awakening back on feels so much better than feeling lousy.
Two videos for you to be with, to center, to connect. First a short video illustrating my process briefly and second, a more vivid recap via periscope.
Now, a longer video via the community in Periscope.
