Day 63: Soggy Saturday
There have been days of deep, focused immersion. As I mentioned previously this week I am unravelling. Choosing to consciously follow this uncoiling thread I become mesmerised in my internal world; I am delighting in the treasures I am finding here in the caves, my creativity is bubbling up and I forget about the external world, hiding away from it even in this studio of curiousity. My thoughts are drawn to what I want to write about today, what I find awesome, when I am stunned into awareness by the loudness of thunder and the verdant leafy greenness outside my wind, boisteriously being ruffled by brother wind blowing in big fat drops of rain. As Stan Phillips puts it so well from his vantage point in Waterford, Ireland today:
Summer comes slow this year.
Shyly,like young and undeclared,
She loves me, she loves me not,love.
And this morning is grey,still,overcast,and cold.
The sky is the colour of lead.
And even the birds who once hurried and scurried around and about the garden,
Are reluctant in the branches. Peering out as if to test the day for possibility of rain by stretching a tentative wing to catch a small drop.
Could birds use brollies?
The sort of thought that flies into that void twixt the ending of Spring
And the hesitant start of Summer.
Which comes slothful upon the unseasonal and tedious year.
It feels good to be hidden away while Summer struggles to assert herself, to be peering at the world through my rain battered glass shield. But not for long – I am about to pack up my spear, my amulets and my iron clad underwear to venture to the training fields of Surrey and William Whitecloud‘s Creative Warrior training; 4 days of shaminic immersion and no doubt some magical awe-some moments. I feel like I am travelling between two or three different realities at the moment smudging the edges of each, dissolving and reconstructing.
100 Days of Awe is a playful project I set up to bring my attention to awe in my daily life. I see awe as wonder, a mixture of amazement and respect. I expect the experience of awe to be about perception shifting awareness and that demands a reframing of some sort. I am excited to see what will awe me on this journey.
