“I want to

unfold.


I don’t want to be folded anywhere,
because where I am folded,
there I am a lie.

The DailyOM on Valentine’s Day 2020:

It is important to choose our partnerships consciously. Sometimes forged quickly during times of need, we may find ourselves rushing into unions with perhaps not the clearest intentions. Partnerships created from those starting point might serve our immediate needs, but the repercussions of a union so quickly fostered without much thought can be difficult to recover from. Granted, there is something to learn from every relationship, but looking to another to fix or complete us can turn a partnership into a dependent bond. If we can stay clear about what we want and what we need in a partnership, while staying grounded and remembering that we are our own source of happiness and fulfillment, we can create partnerships that support and enhance the best of who we are.
Everyone in our lives is a mirror reflecting back the parts we love and dislike about ourselves. If we have the courage to recognize our reflections in each other, we can grow through our partnerships. A partnership that offers both acceptance of who we are and an opportunity for personal transformation can be fertile ground for growing a healthy, lasting union. When we find this kind of partnership, we are more likely to want to keep it, invest in it, and nurture it.
Life is a collaborative effort. Much of what we do can be enhanced through partnership. Together we are stronger because our personal power is multiplied by two. Through partnership we experience the joys of working, living, and loving together.

The elevator in my building,
Artspace’s The Northern Warehouse,
has been down
for

9

days. 
My recent reconstructive surgery prohibits me taking the 5 flights of steps
to
go

OUTSIDE.

Feeling
TRAPPED, HOSTAGE, IMPRISONED
with my free will denied
is
terrible, difficult, challenging.

X

must practice MY freedom exodus flights in MY mind’s eye:
I slowly lift

open

the large window in my loft
so I can feel
the  thrill of the heaven’s wind exhaling
the soft blue of the sky.
My soul escapes:
my body, my cherished wings billow
out from the tight coil
– RELEASED
and

I fly, flying

soaring.

Calming me.

My brother suddenly wanted to see me.
This morning, immediately.
He calls me at 7:15 am
He drove an hour from his home with all his dogs
churning black and white and brown
in the back leather seats of his car.

Catherine! Catherine!

Let down your hair!
