I journey in a pursuit of wholeness, connectedness, and compassion. Two elements are essential to me as I walk this spiritual path: wisdom and balance. I can state these goals succinctly, and I may experience a few more sustained moments of clarity, but I still find myself getting swept along by the maelstrom of life and worry when my anchor loses its loving hold in my soul.
I am a part-time writer and healing artist in training with a full-time day job at a college library. Constantly I try to balance the tensions between my dreams and the obligations that keep me grounded. Though I want to spend all my time on fiction and energy healing and soul work and creating a beautiful home, I must also plant myself firmly in the “reality” of what must be done right now. Someday I hope to exist in all of my various worlds without worrying about that “tension.”
I write in this space because I can only begin to find peace and true vision by articulating what I observe of myself and the world around me. While I seek to move through life with a deepening sense of awareness, I need words to root me in my experience and remind me of my sense of purpose. I can only hope that I can connect with those on similar paths and that my loops of language may help someone, somewhere on his or her own way.
