Dear Readers, what word have you chosen to guide your actions in 2018? I discovered my word while traveling in Argentina. I experienced such an overwhelming sense of abundance, that the word FEAST chose me.
I had been flirting with this word in 2017. My focus was increasingly attending to the riches in my life. Let me name some of them here:
|GROWING THE GOOD|
Life with my boon companion, Tony Martin
Friendships with women from China, Korea, Japan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Argentina
Opportunities to integrate InterPlay with teaching American English fluency
Art making and Art friendships
Facilitating improvisation (InterPlay) as a way to improve science communication
Hard honesty given to me by trusted friends
There are so many other jewels in my life that I am not mentioning here, but you get the idea--right?
Hallelujah for the FEAST!
This FEAST FOCUS requires me to restrain my peripheral vision. Yes! I can see all that is wrong in my personal universe and the ripples of your universes and the world's. 2017 with the Trump presidency shut me down. Some personal challenges with relationships dampened my joy. Lacking vision hampered my creative growth.
I am asking that this 2018 FEAST FOCUS allows me to regain my spirit, my umph--that which makes me feel vital and juicy!
|PERSPECTIVES. I place myself at the "heart root" to improve my perspective of the GOOD. Thanks to Cynthia Winton Henry for her offering of the words from Muriel Rukeyser "The blessing is in the seed." See my previous blog for more on this theme.|
