I wish I could take language
And fold it like cool, moist rags
I would lay words on your forehead.
I would wrap words on your wrists.
“There, there,” my words would say —
Or something better.
I would ask them to murmur,
“Hush” and “Shh, shhh, it’s all right.”
I would ask them to hold you all night.
I wish i could take language
And daub and soothe and cool
Where fever blisters and burns,
Where fever turns yourself against you.
I wish I could take language
And heal the words that were the wounds
You have no names for.

– Julia Cameron

Just a small moment

14 Feb

We got back from vacation yesterday.  The baby is just waking up from a nap, I haven’t eaten breakfast yet, the house is in need of a good picking up, I have several projects in mind that I want to finish up or get started on, and some errands to run.



A few minutes alone.

A deep breath.

A few dabs of essential oils (doTERRA’s Whisper). 

And this song.

All momentarily made me feel like I was doing a slow rumba in a small exotic town.
