with compass and rudder
Safe travels home and thanks as ever for your sharing. I’m up late with jet lag having just returned today to Colorado from Australia. How pleasant and nourishing those beautiful colors are on my tired eyes; never did I think I’d be inspired to make paints... yet here I am, contemplating the exercise as away of deepening my partnership with earth and spirit. Paint making as connection, painting as a prayer to presence. Who would have thought... thank you for sharing your gifts.
Travel safely Caroline. The pictures from NC are compelling. I have spent most of my adult life living in the Pacific NW of the United States and until my mid twenties I lived in the Southern Appalachians including the area of Western NC near Gastonia. I would enjoy reading more about interesting people and places you encountered on this trip.
I am hopeful that this post means you will continue sharing your thoughtful wisdom here in Substack; your last post made me wonder if you would be moving away from writing online (I for one would certainly miss these posts which are like wise stones sinking into water and creating lovely and unexpected ripples). Safe travels. The combination of the turquoise colour and the branching pattern is indeed a very good thing - thank you for sharing.
The lack of self awareness sings through your rightings
I very much look forward to your future writing on the Taoist classics and especially your comparisons between Taoism and neuroscience!
Is muller a brand name...I enjoy your writing Merci
I look forward to the direction you are going.
You were in my neck of the woods and I missed you.....dang! I’d like to strongly suggest a book for you to read: The Body Has Its Reasons by Therese Bertherat and look through the videos on her website: antigymnastique dot com (won’t put links here). Her work is basically like chinese medicine and the most body friendly “rehabilitation” techniques I have known.
