Spring & Rebirth
Like all of us , I struggle with what to do next.
I was stricken by a moment in [ Frozen 2]Of all things... Anna was lost and alone in the cave, overwhelmed with grief having just lost everything.Unable to muster the strength to take the next breath ….[sound familiar?]
“ I've seen dark before, but not like thisThis is cold, this is empty, this is numbThe life I knew is over, the lights are outHello, darkness, I'm ready to succumb “
this movie… it was the day after Thanksgiving, my family and I just put up the Christmas Tree , caught a sunset hayride, and polished off the day with a surprise trip to the movies.
The sweetness of that moment seems like worlds away.
As I sit in my studio surrounded by beautiful gems bits of fabric, paint, herbs and essential oils… it is so tempting to give in to the exhaustion.
“Can there be a day beyond this night?” - Anna asks
What’s the point in making anything?
Even in writing this, the words fall flat. What could I possibly have to say that would inspire anyone?
~And then I remember the chorus from that haunting moment in Frozen…
“ The Next Right Thing “
And drape my throat in raw emeralds
“I won't look too far aheadIt's too much for me to takeBut break it down to this next breath,this next step
This next choice is one that I can make
So I'll walk through this nightStumbling blindly toward the lightAnd do the next right thing”
