buried, 36"x36", mixed media on wood, by lisa parks
i started this post with the intention to check in. because this entire winter has felt a lot like checking out.
i'm still working on my 500-hr yoga teacher training, still working on soul studio curriculum, still painting, still puttering around my house, creating and dismantling tiny altars here and there. tiny altars for rest, for protection, for healing, for the right words, for courage, for liberation. still sitting before those tiny altars, face dimly lit by the little flames, staring at the gathered goddesses and creatures, willing x-ray vision to animate their myths so that they inform my own story or so i can recognize my human self in them, heart slowly blooming with insight and inspiration and ideas.
still softening and opening to what my role is in this brand new world. liberating all the seeds that were buried.
